This Valentine’s Day the Minden Junior Civitans spread love and joy by hosting a Valentine’s party for the MAR-C employees. MAR-C Industries employs individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the vision of providing a place for their employees to learn, grow, and thrive.
“I learned about MAR-C from a close friend that is employed by them. After hearing more about the organization and what great opportunity they provide to my friend and so many others with intellectual and developmental disabilities, I am beyond pleased to, in a small way give back to an organization that provides a vital service in the community.
“Our group had a blast with this event and what better way to spend Valentine’s day that spreading love and doing the cupid shuffle with such a fun group of people,” said Ethan Jeffus, Minden Junior Civitan President.
The Minden Junior Civitans passed out gift bags and Valentines cards to each of the employees, played party games, and opened the floor to a dance party. Special guests for this event included Miss Minden 2019, Sharity Brent.
