Arc Moves Closer to Fundraising Goal

Posted: Updated:
Pasco, WA- Arc of the Tri-Cities is closer to moving into its new home.

Today's breakfast at TRAC raised another 25-thousand dollars for the new three-and-a-half million dollar center to benefit people with disabilities.

Campaign Director Cathy Preston says there are 500 adults who need Arc's services, but Preston says there's just no room.

"Our facility isn't big enough. It isn't handicap accessible, and it's amazing that the arc started in this Quonset hut 50 plus years ago and we've moved three times our entire life."

 More than 300 people attended today's breakfast to help Arc raise another one million dollars for the new building.

Arc expects to break ground next week.
