Take 5 To Give $5 – Bus Fundraiser

We are kicking off a fundraising campaign for a new bus. Generous donors have come forward and helped us cover half ($30,000) of the cost of the new bus. We now need to raise the funds to cover the remaining $30,000. This is where you (and our new fundraising campaign – TAKE 5 TO GIVE $5) come in as we will now be accepting donations (as well as business sponsorships) for the new bus.

You can either click the DONATE button on this post or the link below to donate today. A minimum donation of $5 is being requested however, you may give any amount above that to show your support. Business sponsorships are ALSO available. Your logo (or business name) will be added to the van if a Business Sponsorship was to be purchased.

FOR DONATIONS LARGER THAN $250, PLEASE CALL RON OR MAGGIE AT 850-265-2951.

This fundraiser has ended. Thanks for your support!

St. Andrew Bay Center is now The Arc of the Bay and is proud to join The Arc’s national brand in the spirit of energy and a renewed commitment to providing opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, (I/DD) and their families. 

This dynamic new logo is the new face of The Arc of the Bay and will be on our publications, web site, signs, community events and more. The logo will unite our affiliated chapters across the country under the banner “Achieve With Us,” a call to move forward and take the road leading to progress, inclusion and respect.

 “Our new brand identity represents a new day for The Arc of the Bay and the mission of The Arc.  The new logo is bringing the work of a strong and energetic organization front and center and is a bright reminder that we provide opportunity: Opportunity for Hope, Opportunity for Growth and an Opportunity for Change,” said Executive Director, Ron Sharpe.  

The Arc is the Nation’s largest and leading organization for people with I/DD and their families with 67 years of promoting and protecting the rights of people with I/DD and providing them the opportunity to live full, satisfying and self-determined lives as valued and contributing members of their communities.  The Arc is an agent of change and over the past six decades, The Arc has been on the front lines advocating for legislation to improve the lives of people with I/DD in health care, education, employment, housing and more.
