On November 8th the Camp Fire decimated the towns of Paradise, Magalia, Stirling City, and Concow in Butte County. Almost 30,000 people – has been evacuated and its residents are now dispersed to local evacuation shelters or to family and friends across the state.

The Arc of Butte County lost its Adult Day Program (ADP) center in Paradise. The “Elaine Pegg Adult Day Center” provided services for 35 developmentally disabled adult clients who attended daily. All of these clients have been displaced from their homes or care facilities by the fire, and 13 Arc ADP employees also lost their homes.

In this time of need, let’s show The Arc of Butte County that we stand behind them, and will donate to towards their goal of $42,000 for distribution among 21 Arc staff who are displaced and homeless.

The Arc of Ulster-Greene would like everyone including all Arc Chapters to acknowledge that we are part of a national organization standing together, helping one and other, no matter what state, county or chapter our Arc family is in, we all stand behind the same goal… We are people helping people!
