Norwich, CT – The Arc Eastern Connecticut, a recent merged organization of The Arc New London County and The Arc Quinebaug Valley, is a non-profit committed to advocating for families and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This agency has been selected as a beneficiary of the Big Y Community Bag Program for the month of February.
The Big Y Community Bag Program is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities shoppers live and work in. The program features the reusable Community Bag that allows customers to direct a donation to The Arc Eastern Connecticut.

“We are overwhelmed with excitement to be selected for this community program,” said The Arc Eastern Connecticut Chief Executive Director, Kathleen Stauffer. “Having this opportunity will help spread awareness regarding the work of The Arc, as well as support our mission by continuing to make a difference in the lives of those with disabilities.”
