The Arc’s Lights

Donate to Our Shine Campaign

The Arc’s Lights, a Christmas lights drive through, helps raise funds to support programs and services for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities all year round.

The Arc’s Lights is the most unique light display in Kansas because nearly all of the displays and features are handmade by our volunteers. We couldn’t have done this without hundreds of exuberant volunteers sharing their talents and energies – giving thousands and thousands of hours to make our display bright and to brighten the lives of those we serve.

Thank you to everyone who comes through the Lights each year.  Your donations are used to improve the lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Checkout our Photo Contest.
