In past years, more and more departments throughout The Arc have held Christmas parties for their staff and clients. This year proved to be bigger and better than ever. Christmas parties were thrown by Residential, Rivendale, Renovations and Education and Recreation Departments. Our Joplin and Kansas City Divisions joined in on the fun as well. The parties consisted of good food, games, gifts and even Santa! Kansas City celebrated as a large team for the first time with a PJs and Pancakes theme and a photo booth. The Residential party was made possible by the generous donations from State Beauty Supply, Walmart and Ziggies. Thanks to the hard work and planning of management and donations from the community, staff and clients could come together and celebrate the holidays and enjoy one another. The Arc becomes more like a family each year and it is evident that there was no shortage of Christmas Cheer this year.
