The MARC Foundation, Funding Awareness & Recovery (Aired on March 26, 2023)

                    

Radio Rotary hosts Mike Carber of the MARC Foundation Board of Directors to learn about programs funded by the Foundation and its coming fundraising events. The MARC Foundation, which grew out of the MARC Agency (now a part of Mental Health of America of Dutchess Country), funds programs and organizations that support addiction prevention and recovery, including addiction to alcohol or other drugs or to character defects such as gambling. Recently this support has included developing an overdose memorial, providing scholarships for addiction therapy, and helping substance abusers transition to a drug-free life. Money for this support is raised at the Annual Luncheon and by the Tom Gannon/Cliff Andrews Day of Golf, as well as from contributions to the overdose memorial and donations from the public. A new fundraising event this year is a bowling tournament. Learn the details of these events from the radio show or from the MARC Foundation website, http://www.marc-foundation.org/.
