March is Disability Awareness Month and a perfect time to raise awareness and understanding of disability issues within our community. Did you know that more than 19 percent of Indiana’s population includes adults and children with disabilities? Disability awareness is important to us all, not only in March but throughout the year as well.
The Arc of Evansville works throughout the year to promote and protect the rights of individuals with disabilities and create opportunities for them to live, learn and work as valued members of their communities.
You can support The Arc of Evansville and individuals with disabilities by participating in our upcoming give-back events or participating in one of our Orange Out Days!
Giveback & Event Calendar
Thank you to everyone who participated in our giveback events this month; unfortunately, due to recent circumstances outside of our control and out of respect for the health and safety of those in our community, the remaining Giveback Days for March have been cancelled. We appreciate your support!
In the meantime, you can still help spread awareness by participating in an Orange Out! See the details below.
Orange Out Day
Orange Out Day, held during Disability Awareness Month, brings awareness to the needs of individuals with disabilities. Join us every Friday in March by hosting an Orange Out Day at your organization or business to show your support for individuals with disabilities. Take pictures of your group/business wearing orange and then post them on social media with #TheArcSupporter.
