Casa Marianella has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.
A word from our Co-Executive Directors, Jennifer Long and Patti McCabe:
“With your help, we continue to be one of the few shelters serving asylum seekers in the US. There is a huge need for more capacity. A year ago we announced our intention to build two large houses to increase Casa’s bed space. We’re happy to report that those plans continue. Covid has slowed us down, but we continue to pursue this goal.”
We wouldn’t be in this position without the continuous support of our community. We wanted to share with you a few of the wonderful companies / organizations that have recently fundraised or are currently fundraising for Casa Marianella this season. Some new – some familiar!
