Looking to make a new friend? Enjoy sending and receiving mail? Want a safe rewarding way to be a part of The Arc SoMD?

People with disabilities are often socially isolated on a regular basis so being quarantined at home, without any of their normal supports or routines has been tough for so many of the people we support. Helping someone through the pandemic can turn into a lifelong friendship! For more information email lwaldbauer@arcsomd.org. To sign up to become a penpal visit https://arcsomd.org/volunteerapp/
