The Arc of Southington would like to thank The Barnes Memorial Trust at The Main Street Community Foundation for awarding us a $9,258.00 grant. These funds will be used to update technology and equipment which will allow our office staff to be more productive while working remotely and from the office.
The month of April is Sexual Abuse and Prevention Awareness. The Arc of Southington is teaming up with the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to support their DDS Awareness Campaign. The campaign’s goal is to spread the word about Sexual Abuse Prevention and Awareness against individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD).
Please join us in taking action to “spread the word” to individuals, staff, family, and friends to empower people with ID/DD to prevent, intervene and bring awareness of sexual abuse and/or assault. Also, be on the lookout for the hashtag #itsnotokCT in social media outlets as a way to bring awareness.
Thank you for your support!

The Arc of Southington Joins Stop & Shop's Mission
The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program is designed to make it easy for Stop & Shop customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.
How does the program work?
With every purchase of the $2.50 reusable Community Bag, $1 could be donated to The Arc of Southington. Every little bit helps, and we know that we can always count on our community!
We know this year has been difficult for everyone, but we are hoping this holiday season brings more cheer than ever before.So, ‘Tis the holiday season and the best time of the year to donate!
Shop this season at smile.amazon.com and enjoy the same Amazon products, prices, and Prime benefits, and AmazonSmile will donate to your favorite charity – The Arc of Southington!
We don’t think anyone quite offers Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals like Amazon, so make sure you don’t miss out on those shopping days either.
We encourage you to shop through AmazonSmile, because every purchase you make there, instantly helps us. We are so grateful that Amazon continues to give back, and we are so grateful for all of you, too!
Here’s how it works:
1. Visit: https://smile.amazon.com/
2. Select The Arc of Southington as your charitable organization.
3. Now shop away (just like normal).
4. At checkout, Amazon will donate 0.5% of all of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to The Arc of Southington.
Happy Shopping & Happy Holidays!
Thank you as always, from all of us at The Arc of Southington!
