Recycle Mardi Gras beads

Now that the Mardi Gras parades have passed, ARC Gateway is looking for donations of beads – as well as organizations to volunteer as collection sites. At ARC Gateway’s Pollak Industries, adults with developmental disabilities sort and package donated beads for resale to Mardi Gras krewes and other organizations. The program not only allows them the opportunity to earn their own money while gaining valuable vocational training, it also supports local recycling efforts and helps generates revenue for additional services at ARC Gateway.
