On September 8th, both the Portside and Countryside MARCs (McKenzie Academic Resource Centers) will reopen for the school year! We are excited to begin working with the kids once again through our academic programs. This fall, we are counting on YOU to help make these kids’ lives more fulfilling and exciting. We’d love for you to volunteer to work alongside us as we tutor, mentor, and love on these precious kids.
