I photographed Charlie a few weeks ago. He is a friend of my sister Jane. They both work for MARC,Inc. www.marcct.org in Manchester, CT. If it wasn’t for MARC, Jane would be sitting home eating bon-bons and watching daytime soaps! MARC, Inc. rules!
This is MARC’s mission statement…
MARC, Inc. of Manchester is a not-for-profit agency which supports people with disabilities in Manchester, Connecticut and surrounding towns.
MARC, Inc. is dedicated to advocacy on the local, state, and national level. We deliver diverse, culturally competent services to ensure that all people have the opportunity to live, work, and enjoy their community according to their individual choices.
MARC, Inc. embraces the philosophy that all people should live, work, and play in their community, making friendships and contributions consistent with their skills and abilities. MARC, Inc. ensures access to and maximization of presence and participation in Connecticut town life, opportunities to develop and exercise competency, opportunities to make choices in the pursuit of a personal future, and good relationships with family members and friends, with respect and dignity.
I will be working with a T-shirt designer to design two shirts. Charlie will be on the boys shirt and Jane will be on the girls version. I’ll let you all know when they will be available to purchase. Oh, btw, all proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will benefit MARC, Inc.!
