Volunteering during COVID-19
Here at The Arc Westchester we are proud of the efforts we’ve made to adjust during this Coronavirus Pandemic. It hasn’t been easy, and it’s far from over, but we are confident that will come out stronger on the other side. Especially with support from our community partners. That includes YOU, our amazing volunteers.
Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have been inspired by the resilience of our volunteers, as they continue to engage with our community through virtual and remote efforts. We encourage you to do the same.
While we may be separated, but you can still make an impact!
