Since opening in 2008, M&R Marketing has supported organizations focused on our community’s children. This year marks the fourth annual M&R Gives initiative with donations totaling over $36,000! For our 2021 M&R Gives Campaign, we are proud to partner with Read United, an education initiative of United Way focused on addressing literacy challenges facing children in Central Georgia. We are matching up to $2,500 to support their great organization and we need your help! Students who can’t read by the end of 3rd grade are 4x’s less likely to graduate, making your donations extremely important!
