Liberty ARC receives grant

AMSTERDAM — Liberty ARC, the Montgomery County Chapter of The Arc New York, has been awarded a $1,250 grant from the Stewart’s Holiday Match program. The funds will be used to help offset the expenses of Breakfast with Santa, a holiday event hosted annually by the agency.

The highly anticipated, annual event features a photo-op with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and elves; a picture memento for each child to take home; horse-drawn carriage rides; face painting; crafts; and a full breakfast buffet.

Approximately, 265 people, 125 of whom were children, registered to attend Breakfast with Santa in 2019.
