Dear Friends,

During this week of gratitude, I have been reflecting on the past 68 years of The Arc Mid-South and the wonderful people, partners and community members who have joined us in supporting it. Together, we have made a difference in the lives of thousands of children and families.

This Thanksgiving, all of us at The Arc Mid South are thankful to you - our families, students, teachers, volunteers, members, donors, and business partners. We are particularly thankful for your support of our mission to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential through the "Creating Independence and Supporting Literacy" program.

We are excited to be part of Giving Tuesday on November 27th, an opportunity to unite together around causes in which you truly believe. So, in the spirit of the holidays, I am asking you to consider making The Arc Mid-South your charity of choice during this holiday season.  

Tuesday, November 27th is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving back. So please stop and think about what your community means to you and how you can help it. Then consider how a contribution to The Arc Mid-South could help change the lives of those with different abilities.  

Thank you in advance for your generosity to our organization!
