NAPRCA to Partner with The Arc of Morgan County for the 2014 PRo Bono Project

August 7, 2014  |  News, Projects, Students

NAPRCA is proud to announce The Arc of Morgan County will be the recipient of free public relations strategic planning through the 2014 PRo Bono Project.

The PRo Bono Project invited Tennessee Valley nonprofits to apply for free public relations strategic planning from our chapter. Nonprofit groups from across the community submitted their needs through an essay-based application. The NAPRCA Board of Directors evaluated the applications and awarded the volunteer services to The Arc of Morgan County.

The Arc of Morgan County is a non-profit organization that advocates for and empowers individuals with developmental delays. Currently, The Arc provides after school and summer programs. Adult services are limited in Morgan County, and The Arc has developed a plan to fund “People First,” which is an adult advocacy service that offers help in self-directed goals such as employment, civic activities or independent living. The Arc will fund “People First” by establishing daycare services for children with developmental delays. They plan for the profits generated from the daycare to support the adult programs which are not currently funding.

The Arc needs NAPRCA’s help developing a strategic plan to promote these services to the community. And now the NAPRCA needs the help of members to serve on the committee and make it happen!  Join the committee to help put RPIE (research, planning, implementation and evaluation) into motion for this highly deserving organization.

Send an email to Leah Gradl for more information.

There is also a PRo Bono Committee currently meeting with the BBB of North Alabama to assist in developing a strategic plan for their 50th anniversary celebration. Contact Lori Miller  if you’re interested in that committee.
