You walk into an MRC community anywhere in the state of Texas and you look at beautiful common spaces and well-appointed furnishings and you might easily think, “This place is so nice, why would you ask me to donate money?”
It’s true that MRC communities are beautiful and well-maintained. They are often the nicest senior living community in town. But what makes an MRC community different is that MRC communities are all not-for-profit organizations and as a not-for-profit, each community is driven by a mission of providing faith-based quality living for the seniors who call that community home. Home is an important idea to us because as mission-driven organizations, our communities are committed to serving residents in their home for as long as they live. Our belief is that no one should ever have to leave their MRC home even if they get to the point they can’t pay full price for the care and services they need.
Most often there are two primary reasons a resident would get to the point of needing assistance with the cost of their care and services.
Residents come to an MRC Community with the hope of living a great life. They become family to us and us to them and it only makes sense to help them with the cost of their care and services if that need arises.
In 2020, we expect the financial assistance we provide for our residents state-wide to surpass $2,000,000. Even in beautiful, well-appointed communities like you find at MRC, that’s a lot of money.
Your tax-deductible donations make a huge difference for these residents. On GivingTuesday, December 1st, won’t you make a gift at www.mrcaff.org/giving to help us meet this need?
