Straight from the Heart
An Arc of Greensboro Fundraising Event
Supporting our Community Navigator Program
Welcome to my team page for Straight from the Heart, a fundraiser for the Arc of Greensboro. As a member of the Arc of Greensboro Board of Directors, I join the other Board members in this team fundraising event. My passion for the Arc and its role in the community began with my brother-in-law, Ronny (pictured with his brother and my husband). Though he never lived in Greensboro he received services and help from groups in his hometown. After Ronny's parents passed away and he was totally dependent upon the services from organizations like the Arc, we discovered a different person in Ronny as he became part of a community with the responsibilities and privileges one earns when part of a group. Ronny, always a good natured and happy person, was even more engaging and happier than we'd ever seen. Ronny passed away in 2012, but the people, the services, the opportunities, and the love he knew continues to thrive through organizations like the Arc of Greensboro.
Local families depend on the Arc of Greensboro just as our family depended on local agencies for Ronny's care and services. They need the services and resources that the Arc provides to give their family members with challenges and disabilities full, rich lives.
In order to support the work of the Arc, please help me raise $1000 as my part of the team challenge. If you are able and interested, I invite you to donate any amount to support Arc programs and to assure the Arc's continued presence in Greensboro and the lives of families.
The Arc Board of Directors is hoping to raise $10,000 through this friends and family campaign, Straight from the Heart. Thank you for reading my story and for any contribution you are able to make to my team for the Arc of Greensboro.
