2020 Holiday Gift Drive

Dear Friends,

‘Tis the season.... for giving to those who would normally not receive.

Each holiday season, The Arc of the Triangle supports over 150 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by determining their needs and providing them with a thoughtful gift(s). It should be noted some of these individuals will not receive anything if not for this simple gesture. Often, these individuals request only essential items such as socks, comforters, coats, and other simple necessities that we sometimes take for granted. One simple gift can make a better holiday for someone. 

How you can help:

  • Take a look at the list below, select your number(s) and email Keara with your choice(s). FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. We will send a confirmation email. If you choose a number that has already been taken, we will find the next closest and be in touch to confirm.

    • Do your shopping (many of the choices are easy online purchases!) keeping in mind each person's gift(s) should total a minimum* of $50. All gifts must be new and unwrapped. (or you can put them in a holiday gift bag!)

    • Due to Covid-19 our offices are open limited hours, please call before you deliver your gifts. Uwrapped Gifts may be delivered to Raleigh or Chapel Hill and should arrive no later than December 14th.


  • You can donate online and we will do the shopping for you!

(*Some wish lists total over $50 - if you want you may purchase all the items!)

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OUR SUPPORT! Happy Holidays to you and your family.
