Niantic Rotary Awards $500 to The Arc New London County

The Arc New London County, a nonprofit agency serving people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), received $500 from the Rotary Club of Niantic to support its Community Life & Advocacy program. CL&A offers socialization, self-advocacy, civic engagement and recreation/Special Olympics programming to people with IDD, and is the only program of its kind in the region.  It receives no state or federal funding and relies on donations from service organizations, private foundations and the United Way. The Rotary Club of Niantic has been one of CL&A’s key supporters through the years and has helped the program maintain and augment its varied and quality services.
