Representatives from Trend Development and Long Meadow Farms (LMF) community, a master-planned community in Richmond, Texas, presented The Arc of Fort Bend County a check for $5,400. The residents of Long Meadow Farms attend community social events throughout the year sponsored by Trend Development.
“The proceeds of these events are donated back to our community,” said Tanya Teske, account executive for Long Meadow Farms.
“This is the second year The Arc of Fort Bend County was chosen to receive the donation because of the support and services The Arc provides to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the county.”
The mission of The Arc of Fort Bend County, a nonprofit organization, is to improve the quality of life of individuals with intellectual and related developmental disabilities. For more than 40 years, The Arc has worked in the community to serve as a catalyst for change by providing legislative and educational advocacy. Additionally, direct services include employment assistance, recreational programs, Special Olympics, parent support groups, and a Self-Advocates program.
“An adult with an intellectual disability can often live a life of isolation after leaving the public school system,” said Laura LaVigne, Executive Director of The Arc. “The Arc of Fort Bend County strives to improve the quality of life for all through our many programs and services. Thank you, Trend Development and Long Meadow Farms for your generous donations which have supported those who need it most.”
