September Update and Needs

The whole community of Marion came together for the School Supply project so that 416 students were served with brand new school supplies and backpacks. Conversations are continuing with the parents so that their children can be enriched through our afterschool programs and we can help them navigate their child’s school progress through PowerSchool.

 Volunteer after-school to enrich the lives of students!

 We need the following volunteers – click here to sign up or ask questions.

What will you put in your trunk?

Marion Cares organizes churches, businesses, school groups, individuals and service clubs to fill their trunks with needs (socks, mittens, personal care items, canned food, etc.) and candy. These events are held on Friday, October 25th and Saturday, October 26th at various times. Help a family celebrate Halloween with a smile! Click here to ask questions!
