The Arc partners with organizations and companies to create and nurture volunteerism across America. These partnerships include:
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service/CNCS
Since 2015, The Arc has been the recipient of a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that leads national Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service activities. Each year, the grant enables chapters of The Arc and other organizations across the country to plan and execute volunteer projects that unite communities in service. To date, MLK Day service projects have helped over 54,978 people and given 2,582 volunteers the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships in the community.
Comcast Cares Day
Every April, The Arc partners with ComcastNBCUniversal for Comcast Cares Day. The event is the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort, and a powerful representation of their company’s year-round commitment to community service. Comcast partners with local chapters of The Arc for joint inclusive volunteer projects.
