At no time in history has friendship been more important. Marklund roommates TC and Nick became fast friends 30 years ago, and their relationship has only grown stronger over the years. They are one of countless relationships that are possible because of your support.

When Nick’s weekly visits from his mom had to stop due to pandemic lockdown and he was sad, TC was there for him – helping him laugh. When they couldn’t go into the community for outings that TC enjoys, Nick encouraged TC to join him in activities such as game nights and decorating their home. Their nighttime routine of listening to music while drifting off to sleep was a constant that kept things feeling normal. 

The opportunity to build friendships like this is invaluable for everyone who lives at Marklund.

Friendship is just one of many things that Marklund encourages as part of our mission, and our promise to make everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities.

Please don’t wait – your gift, if received by June 30th, will be matched and help friendships, like Nick & TC’s, grow at Marklund. Don’t miss this generous opportunity to double your impact TODAY!

With gratitude,

Gilbert Fonger
President and CEO
