AMSTERDAM — Liberty ARC, the Montgomery County Chapter of The Arc New York, received $3,500 from Stewart’s Shops and the Dake family to help offset expenses of personal protective equipment, as it relates to COVID-19.

Liberty ARC responded to the COVID-19 outbreak quickly, carefully, and proactively to protect the health and safety of their workforce and the individuals supported by the agency. In an effort to ensure all operational sites were properly equipped to effectively and safely provide services, Liberty ARC purchased PPE such as masks, gloves, face shields, goggles, gowns, and more.

Currently, due to the temporary suspension of various programs as a result of COVID-19, the majority of Liberty ARC’s operations are within the residential services program, through which an approximate 220 individuals with disabilities receive support.
