The Arc Eastern Connecticut Receives Donation from AHEPA

The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (Order of AHEPA) presented The Arc Eastern Connecticut with a $1,000 donation at The Arc’s main offices in Norwich. Funds will be used to support the agency’s Community Life & Advocacy (CL&A) program, which provides community engagement opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities that include selfadvocacy, health/fitness/Special Olympics, and volunteer activities, among others.

“We love supporting The Arc,” said AHEPA President George Grossomanides. “They provide such important services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the region.” “AHEPA is such a great organization,” noted Bill Furgueson, Chief Development Officer at The Arc ECT.

“They’ve been a consistent supporter and advocate over the years, and we’re honored to have them as a community partner.”

AHEPA is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Greek heritage, established to promote civil rights and combat discrimination. It has over 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Europe.
