"We do this because we can't serve the county without our employees."

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM)– Holidays are all about buying and gifting presents to loved ones, however one local non-profit decided to take care of its employees with 500 turkeys.

Along with raffles, kitchen items and holiday treats, The Arc truly thank their employees for their entire year of service.

The Arc is planning a state-wide listening tour this month, their first stop will be in Frederick county on the 18th.

“It’s just our small way of being able to say thank you for everything you do for the organization and people you support.” said Executive Director Troy Vanscoioc.
