ARC Electric Company is on a mission!

We recently partnered with the Matthews Help Center in Matthews, NC to donate to their Bounceback Backpack Program. This program we have opened up to all our employees and have gotten a great response. Every month we donate one weeks worth of meals to feed children in need. We typically need to fill 65 backpacks.
 
“Many children will be receiving free or reduced breakfasts and lunches at school, but will have no food on the weekends. With your help, Matthews HELP Center will provide food for 60 identified children at three local elementary schools. The BounceBack Backpack program provides healthy, kid-friendly, non-perishable food every weekend throughout the school year. This food will not only supplement a hungry child’s diet, but may also ease anxieties, improve attention span, and increase academic performance. It is very difficult for children to concentrate in school when concerned about their next meal. In order to provide food for 60 children every Friday, we need your support. Will you help feed a hungry child? Opportunities can include “adopt a weekend” or monetary donations.
