THINK OF MARC ON CYBER MONDAY AND GIVING TUESDAY FOR YEAR END DONATIONS NOVEMBER 26 & 27The Monroe Associationfor ReMARCable Citizens, which provides vital life services for Monroe County’s adult developmentally and intellectually disabled residents, is asking everyone to consider making a year-end donation on Cyber Monday (November 26) and Giving Tuesday (November 27). These days of giving, fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, provide great and easy opportunities to support the MARC program. All of the donations collected from both of these events will go to MARC’s “A Roof Over Our Heads” fund. This fund ensures that MARC family members will always have a safe place to live. Donations to the fund cover many critical areas of the residential program, such as when a water heater or refrigerator dies, a leak appears in the living room or a fence needs to be replaced after a storm. This fund helps cover these unexpected costs, making sure the MARC program is always a safe and secure place for our family members.
