The Association for Retarded Citizens-Utah is not associated with unauthorized persons soliciting funds in Salt Lake neighborhoods in their name, the association's unit services coordinator said.

The association received reports that someone claiming to represent ARC-Utah was asking for contributions in the Avenues area of the city, said Sheilin Rowley. The organization does not engage in door-to-door solicitation, she said."That isn't something we do and if they were representing our organization they would have an identification card indicating they are with ARC," Rowley said.
