Holiday Giving
From the Alumni Cares Network

In an effort to give back to those less fortunate, MARR’s Alumni community is partnering with the Gwinnett Children’s Shelter to deliver gifts (and smiles!) to children ages 12 to 17. Adolescents who come from a troubled family life often turn to drugs and alcohol for temporary relief and thus, are more prone to addiction. The Alumni at MARR want to carry the message of recovery to these individuals and offer hope this holiday season by contributing to Angel Tree gift-giving.

Donate any of the following items to the MARR Administration building or the Women’s Recovery Center between now and Friday, December 7. Or, click here to make a monetary donation (be sure to check the ‘Holiday Giving’ box). Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

“No one has ever become poor from giving.” –Anne Frank
