Center, Alter Home Care, and Psalm and Thread. The mission of the ARC is to be a place where ministries and organizations equip, empower, and bring hope to the community. In fact, the ARC is an acronym for All Our Community and All Our Children, and that is specifically whom the small group of pastors and volunteers aim to serve. In early fall, the staff of ARC pastors discussed what the organization could do for local children to help brighten their Christmas experience. The discussion led to a bicycle giveaway, and the event was quickly launched. Rinehardt Law Case Manager Stephanie Hunt is an outreach pastor at the ARC. As with everything she does, Stephanie jumped in and helped get things moving forward. The first step was to host a Bike Application Handout event, which took place on a chilly Thursday evening. ARC opened its doors to the community, providing hot cocoa and popcorn to the children and adults who stopped by to fill out a bike application. In the first night of accepting applications, the ARC received over 50 requests and continued to accept requests through Dec. 1. With the help of local generous businesses, such as Rinehardt Injury Attorneys, the ARC will give away 100 bicycles during the Christmas Bike Giveaway, which will take place on Dec. 12 from 1–3 p.m. The ARC is truly grateful for the community support and is anticipating even bigger community events in the future. To learn more about the ARC and the services provided there, follow its Facebook page or stop by 378 PAW to attend a worship service, which take place on Thursday and Sunday evenings at 6 p.m.

LIDAY GIFT IDEA
We have used our clients’ dash cam footage to create a clear picture of what happened in crashes. Sometimes the footage even shows that the person who caused the accident was driving distracted or driving erratically. Dash cams also protect against vandalism and theft. While the dash cam itself can be stolen, many dash cams are so discreet that they are usually unnoticeable. A dash cam can capture footage of accidental dings, vandalism, or interior theft. Dash cams can also capture hit-and-runs, showing who is responsible for the damage and preventing insurance spikes for the owner of the damaged vehicle. There are several kinds of dash cams and cost varies by model and features, like whether they record only from the front windshield or also the rear and interior of the vehicle. Dash cams can cost anywhere from $30 to more than $300 depending on the make and model of the camera, with the highest-ranked cameras averaging $100 and the best-selling dash cams averaging under $50. Higher-end dash cams have touchscreens and smartphone compatibility, and higher resolution cameras provide clarity enough to read license plates, have a wider field of view, and include more storage capacity. A dash cam can help save thousands when dealing with unexpected insurance claims and can hold responsible parties accountable for bodily injuries due to automobile accidents. We think they make a great Christmas gift. Follow us on Facebook and watch for a dash cam giveaway coming soon!
