Civitan Grant of $30K Purchases Scanning Equipment for ARC

The Civitan Chesapeake Foundation and the Greater Richmond Civitan Club recently awarded $30,000 -- $29,000 from the Foundation and $1,000 from the Club -- to ARC Industrial Services for scanning equipment. The Foundation members were very enthusiastic about the use of funds that are in line with the Foundation's mission to train and employ individuals with developmental disabilities.

The documents used to prepare the grant were very well-written and detailed, according to David Nigrelli, President of the Greater Richmond Civitan Club.

"Pat Robson and Anne Waring both deserve thanks for their efforts in moving the grant through the Foundation," said Nigrelli. "Our Club is very happy to again work with the ARC and we appreciate what you are doing to help the individuals served and to better the community."
