Dime Bank Awards Grant to The Arc New London County

Norwich, CT – The Dime Bank Foundation has awarded $1,536.00 to The Arc New London County to help provide transportation for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who are attending The Arc’s digital literacy training course.
The repeating 8-week course is funded by a grant from Comcast and teaches participants and their caregivers how to use the iPad’s many apps for daily living, communication, and support for people with limited or no verbal abilities. The course also places heavy emphasis on personal safety and information protection. The Dime Bank’s assistance will ensure that all participants in the digital literacy course are able to attend each session promptly and safely as part of their programming.
