Valentine Gift Sale
The Arc of Stanly County, Inc. is once again conducting its annual Valentine Gift Sale (Project Cupid). Last year over 700 recipients - secretaries, bosses, teachers, mail carriers, wives, husbands, ‘secret pals’, shut- ins, etc. – were remembered in a special way. This annual fundraiser began eight years ago and has been successful since that time. There are several ways that folks in Stanly County can be a part of Project Cupid 2003:
  1. A contribution can be made to provide a gift for someone in the community.
  2. Provide the name of someone in the community who needs their life touched, but is unlikely to be remembered.
  3. Purchase a Valentine gift for someone special. Each decorative Valentine Gift box, which sells for $10.00, contains Welch’s juice, muffin, Chocolate Turtles, gift and card.
For more information on this annual event, contact Meredith Clements, Development Manager, at Arc Services, Inc. at (704) 983- 3911.
