Enjoy One, Share One

Adirondac Rafting Company has partnered with the Regional Food Bank of N.EN.Y to feed needy local families.

When you raft with ARC a donation is made in your honor to the Regional Food Bank of N.E.N.Y. that will provide a meal for a person in need. Enjoy your riverside lunch, and share with the less fortunate. We're into whitewater rafting, and we're into social responsibility. Come raft with us this Spring.

Be the force of change that makes your world a better place. ARC is committed to giving back to our community.
