SEYMOUR, Ind. (Dec. 14, 2023) – Beacon Credit Union recently donated $1,000 to Arc of Jackson County for their Achieving Right Choices program.

The Arc of Jackson County is a non-profit human service agency and aids adults with disabilities and their residing communities.

The Achieving Right Choices program, launched in 2022, is designed to discuss feelings and emotions and healthy ways to respond in special education classrooms in Jackson County.

The program also informs families about the services offered through the Arc of Jackson County. The organizations purpose is to advocate and provide resources for those with disabilities and their families.

“I donated to the Arc because growing up the individuals I knew with disabilities received support from family, friends and from similar programs in the community to help them learn the basics needed in life,” Seymour Member Center Manager Amy Steitz said.

She said it was rewarding seeing the work Melanie O’Neal, Arc of Jackson County Executive Director, has done in Jackson County to help provide the same and similar benefits to individuals with disabilities.

“It is important for all people to have the opportunities to learn,” Steitz said.
