Today’s #Covid19kindness shout out goes to Howard Chamber of Commerce! Thank you to President, Leonardo McClarty, Director of Membership, Ronny Nadiv and all of the Chamber for donating much needed face masks to The Arc of Howard County! The Arc continues to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities everyday during this pandemic! Thank you for remembering us and for helping to keep the people we serve and our staff (who are Covid-19 Heroes!) safe during this pandemic.
Throughout this COVID-19 Crisis, our Direct Support Professionals, LPN’s and staff have been Heroes, working to keep everyone healthy, happy and safe! We hope you enjoy this video, made by Holly and John Reasner and featuring music by Uncle John Sawbriar!
Always remember, we are not Stuck in our Homes, we are Safe in our Homes and at The Arc of Howard County…There is No Place Like Home
