THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –The Arc of Thomas & Grady Counties is holding its annual membership drive to raise money to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The United Way member organization works through private donations to provide help with utilities, summer camp fees, recreation, job placement, and medical needs of its participants.

Some of the money raised through the 30-dollar membership will pay for their Christmas party.

"We have dinner for everybody and a lot of volunteers come to help us with that," says Tony Gelabert, the Arc of Thomas-Grady County & Service Center Director. "And we dance and party."

Presents are also given out to participants at the annual party.

If you'd like more information about Arc, contact them at (229) 225-4065.
