This year, Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is September 12–18, and we have some surprises in store for our wonderful MARC staff to demonstrate our appreciation. MARC's staff is remarkable every day of the year! The pandemic amplifies all the wonderful qualities that make MARC staff the absolute best - caring, patient, humane, fearless, welcoming, encouraging, dedicated, nurturing, and selfless. Who do you know that embodies these qualities? Won't you make a donation to MARC, Inc. in honor of the person who does something wonderful for you and your loved one?

Also happening this month is the Big Y Give Back. When you by a $2.50 Community Bag from the Big Y at 234 Tolland Turnpike, $1.00 will get donated to MARC.
If you're looking for something to do, head to the East Hartford Public Library on Main Street in East Hartford and see our travelling art show called "Our Happiness Throughout the Pandemic."
More importantly, be safe. Wear a mask. Get vaccinated. Stay home if you are not feeling well. Treat yourself right and keep the community healthy.
