Extraordinary Give

November 17, 2017

Arch Street Center has some fantastic incentives for this year’s Extraordinary Give!

We’ve secured a $5,000 match AND we will be raffling off a 40″ LED television!

Be sure to come by Tellus360 after 5:00 on the 17th during the Great Giving Gig. Arch Street Center’s booth will be located on the second floor. Come show your support during this EXTRAORDINARY event!

It’s a crisp Friday evening, in Lancaster, PA:
You’re a seasoned detective, checking the wire for a lead.
Just then… the phone rings – it’s the Chief!
There’s been a heist!
Donations for some local charities have been lifted from the bank! Direct orders are to hoof it downtown to grill the suspects, gather the clues, and solve the crime!
Grab your trenchcoat and fedora, kid, we’ve got a case to solve.

The Great Giving Gig (in celebration of The Extraordinary Give) is back, and this year it’s your job to figure out whodunnit!

Get yourself to Tellus360 on Friday, November 17th between 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. for activities, food, and live music. Giving stations will be available at the event for guests to donate to their favorite community benefit organization throughout the evening.

The event is hosted in partnership by the following non-profit organizations:
Advantage Lancaster, Arch Street Center, CASA of Lancaster County, Children’s Dyslexia Center of Lancaster, Clare House,
Creative Works of Lancaster, CWS – Lancaster Immigration & Refugee Program, Lancaster Creative Factory, Lancaster Public Library, LEADS, Making Lancaster Beautiful Every Season, Music For Everyone, and YWCA Lancaster

Special thank you to the sponsors of the Great Giving Gig – Tellus360, and TCW Computer Systems, Inc.

Membership Dues

At $5.00 a year, Arch Street Center membership dues are a way for members to feel a sense of ownership of the Center, providing a hand up, not a hand out. But the fee doesn’t cover the cost of benefits that membership provides, just as the $1.00 per dinner does not cover the cost of the meal. Because many of our members would not be able to participate in activities, or even membership, if these fees were raised, contributions from community partners like you are crucial to our ability to provide our members with meals, activities, and a safe space to call their own.

Be a part of our mission

Arch Street Center has supported the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness since 1983.

Arch Street Center isn’t just a place to go… it’s a place to BELONG!

18,000 Meals

There is no more basic human need than that of sustenance. Arch Street Center provides two full meals, snacks, coffee, tea and cold beverages daily. Additionally we occasionally provide care packages of canned and packages goods for members in particular need. Many of our members experience food insecurity and periods of homelessness. Our food offerings are a vital resource and for some members may be the only meals they have on a given day. We estimate that over 45 members eat at the Center on a daily basis.
That’s nearly 18,000 meals per year!
