INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Once again, the Grand Harbor Community Outreach Program, Inc., has lent a helping hand to The Arc of Indian River County, this time with a check for $11,043 to go towards renovations at the west campus.

Betty Jacobs and Sherry Henderson, representing the Grand Harbor Community Outreach Program, presented the check to Arc Board of Directors Chairman Dick Pippert and Executive Director Chuck Bradley.

“It has been several years since any improvements have been made to the entryway at the west campus, so we are very grateful to Grand Harbor Community Outreach for making this possible,” Bradley said.

When Pippert thanked Jacobs and Henderson for their continued support of The Arc, Jacobs replied, “The individuals you serve are precious to all of us and we are so impressed with the work your agency does. We are happy to be able to help in any way we can.”

Grand Harbor Community Outreach is an all-volunteer organization managed by Grand Harbor residents that has distributed more than $3 million into Vero Beach and surrounding communities since its founding 15 years ago. Their primary focus is to provide hope and help to their neighbors in need so they can lift themselves out of poverty.

“We greatly appreciate the Grand Harbor Community Outreach Program, Inc., the Philanthropy Committee, Grand Harbor residents and their corporate sponsors for partnering with The Arc these past several years” said Dick Pippert.
