Community helps spread Christmas cheer at The Arc

Special to The Log
Arc Angels were thrilled with gifts from the community. SPECIAL TO THE LOG

The Arc of the Emerald Coast hosted its annual Christmas party on Dec. 8. More than 15 Arc employees pitched in to host a celebration for more than 30 men and women from the organization's group homes — many who are not able to celebrate the season with family.

The supportive community also came together for the "Arc Angels"  program, which provided wrapped gifts to deserving individuals.

The Arc's mission is to "create a path from disability to capability" in Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties. For more information, visit
