The Arc Pikes Peak Region is one of the hundreds of chapters of The Arc, the nation’s largest volunteer organization that advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The organization strives to be a resource for individuals and their families and provide them access to information, advocacy, and the necessary skills to support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lives.
Next week, the Arc Pikes Peak Region will be hosting a variety of holiday events for kids and the family. The Arc Pikes Peak Region is partnering with The Cool C.A.T.S (Children of All Types Succeeding), a community that encourages kids of all abilities to get involved and participate in events and activities, to host Chillin’ with the C.A.T.S Winter Edition. You’re invited to join the fun and participate in accessible cooking, crafting, and music activities. There is an event on Wednesday, December 8, 4:30pm-6:00pm, and the final event of the Winter Program will be a holiday party held on Friday, December 10, 6:00pm-7:30pm. The cost to register is $20 per household or immediate family. You can register by texting “CHILLIN21” to (719) 881-8969. The program events will take place at The Arc Pikes Peak Region’s office in Colorado Springs.
On Saturday December 11, the Arc Pikes Peak Region and Emm CO Culinary Experiences, a company that creates connection between people and teaches about food, are hosting a Holiday Cookies & Cocoa FUNdraiser. Attendees will bake and decorate sugar cookies with their families and friends and sip on hot cocoa made at a hot cocoa bar that will have all kinds of tasty treats and toppings. Once your fresh-out-the-oven sugar cookies are cooled, you’ll decorate them with creative toppings and decorations. There are two sessions to choose from. The first starts at 9:30am, and the second at 10:30am. It is encouraged that you plan for the event to take at least 2-3 hours from the start of your session to allow for enough time to bake and decorate cookies and drink hot cocoa. The cost of admission is $8 per child and $6 per adult. Space is limited, so you’ll want to register soon. All proceeds will benefit people with disabilities in the community.
Check out the full December calendar of The Arc Pikes Peak Region. To never miss an upcoming event, sign up for the Arc Pikes Peak Region mailing list. You’ll be sent a weekly e-newsletter every Thursday that will include news, event invitations, and other important information.
