The Arc of Greater Prince William’s Recreation Program has made gathering donations into a game that anyone can play.
According to its website, The Arc is dedicated to providing specialized education and engaging activities to persons of all ages with disabilities. The goal of The Arc is to help these persons become more independent.
For over 58 years, The Arc has served almost 150,000 families in the Prince William community. To keep its program alive, the non-profit has begun a fundraiser in the form of an engaging game of BINGO.
The Arc has made BINGO cards in which each square represents a different dollar amount. A donation must equal the exact amount in a square in order to block it off. The Arc will mail out cards and shamrock stickers to cover the squares. A player may also come to the office at 13505 Hillendale Drive in Dale City and pick them up, if they prefer.
Of course, players are allowed to cover any squares as they please. There is also an opportunity to win prizes.
If a player gets all four corners of their card, they will be rewarded a free BINGO game on March 17. If the covered squares make an X shape across the card, the prize is a green tumbler. To win a St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt, the covered squares must form a box around the perimeter of the card. Finally, if all squares are covered, the player will receive a sweatshirt.
To receive rewards or finish the BINGO fundraiser, return the cards and donations to The Arc main office at 13505 Hillendale Drive by March 31.
