Knights of Columbus Council 7054 Awards $500 to The Arc New London County
NORWICH—The Gales Ferry chapter of the Knights of Columbus awarded $500 to The Arc New London County as part of the proceeds from its 2016 Tootsie Roll Drive. Thanks to the continued support of the Knights of Columbus, The Arc is able to provide recreation programs and activities, including Special Olympics, to over 170 participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) from southeastern Connecticut. The Arc’s Community Life & Advocacy program also offers self-advocacy, support groups for survivors of sex abuse and domestic violence, socialization and work presentation skills, and civic engagement groups that help individuals with I/DD live their best lives.
