BENEFITING: CUMBERLAND VALLEY ARC
Our Programs enhance the quality of life and provide exceptional opportunities for individuals with disabilities in Middle Tennessee. It is now imperative for the Cumberland Valley Arc, Inc. to establish a means of a recurring income to maintain these programs. The Cumberland Valley Arc, Inc .receives daily calls from citizens who want to donate items for us to re-sell. At this point we do not have a facility that we can use as a resale facility. We need to open a resale store that can be used to not only help the people in one of our less affluent communities by providing a shopping experience that provides recycled items at a discounted price, but it also can serve two fold in our effort to enhance the quality of life for our individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This store will be used to train individuals within the framework of retail that will include jobs as cashier, stocking, repairing items for resale and a host of other opportunities. The store will also create an opportunity for the general public to interact with these individuals and enhance their value as citizens participating in the community at large. The profits from this endeavor will be used to help our current programs and the development of future programs that give greater autonomy, employment opportunities and social interactions to the individuals we serve.
You can bring inclusion and independence with your $20 donation. Be a part of the solution.
