On Friday, December 16, The Arc of Massachusetts lit up the Prudential Tower in our signature orange as part of The Shops at Prudential Center 31 Nights of Light celebration. The Prudential Center selects a nonprofit partner for each night in December and lights the Prudential Tower in the organization’s color. The annual event has been taking place since 2009 and helps to raise awareness of important causes. The Arc of Massachusetts was delighted to be chosen as a lighting partner this year!
