December 2017 News
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season! We hope you will begin this year’s charitable season by supporting Marin Villages and our mission to keep older adults active, connected, and independent in their own homes and communities.
While our community now numbers close to 700 members and volunteers, with approximately 8% of our members receiving scholarships. We need your help to continue to make a difference for older adults here in Marin County. We recently received a $10,000 Matching Grant from the Gruber Family Foundation to assist with this year’s annual fundraising efforts. That means every donation, big or small, helps us get a little closer!! Please help us match their generous contribution. CLICK HERE TO DONATE TODAY!!!
Thank you for your continued support. YOU are the lifeblood of our organization!
