Some heroes wear masks, capes, and have superpowers like invisibility, x-ray vision, and teleportation. At arc Thrift Stores we see heroes every day of a slightly different variety. Our employees, who are true heroes, come to work every day, contribute, and – despite some obstacles and hardships that most of us can’t imagine – bring joy to our customers and to our arc family. Your support will greatly assist our mission of funding advocacy and services for children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities; our heroes. arc Thrift Stores has been the funding arm for thirteen Arc Chapters across the State of Colorado – providing approximately $100 million in support since 1968. We currently operate 27 thrift stores along the Front Range, and employ nearly 300 individuals with disabilities – making us one of Colorado’s largest integrated employers of people with disabilities. We offer enrichment programs, job training and placement, as well as social activities for our employees with disabilities, known as Arc Ambassadors. We invite you to join us on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Convention Center for a special dinner celebrating the accomplishments of this year’s “Heroes of the Year.” Our Heroes are arc employees and each has a disability that hasn’t slowed them down one bit. We will also be presenting a unique fashion show and a silent auction like none other. Your participation will give the children and adults served by The Arc Chapters an opportunity to lead independent, fulfilled, happy and productive lives in our community. Join us for a celebration of life and a joyful evening of possibilities. [Organizer's description]
