Holiday Helping


Looking for some ways to help this holiday season? The Arc of the Rappahannock needs people to help provide holiday gifts to area residents with intellectual disabilities.

The Arc especially needs: gift cards, gifts for boys or girls, wrapping paper and ribbon.

And if you want to offer some more hands-on help, the Arc also needs volunteers to help with shopping and gift-wrapping.

Contact the Arc at 540/318-6061.
