The holidays are over and Mardi Gras is just around the corner. After the parades are done, take your leftover beads to one of several Arc Gateway bead collection sites throughout the Pensacola and Gulf Breeze areas.  
By collecting and selling bundles of beads, The Arc Gateway is supporting the community’s effort to recycle and reuse materials instead of generating waste. They are also generating revenues that help to sustain their many programs that provide vocational training and job opportunities for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

For more than 50 years, The Arc Gateway has been proud to provide life-enhancing programs that help persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities realize their dreams. With the help of members, supporters and volunteers, The Arc Gateway is able to sustain their existing services and develop innovative new ways to help children and adults with developmental disabilities reach their full potential.
