Marian Employees Celebrate the Holidays by Giving Back
All over the country, our Marian locations are celebrating the holiday season in different ways. Take a look at the different things each location is doing to celebrate the holiday season and to help their local communities.
Every year during the holiday season, Marian Mexico works with an organization called Christmas Street. Christmas Street puts up Christmas Trees at Marian Mexico’s facility for donations. The funds collected go to a local group called Paso Del Norte Children’s Development Center which work with special needs youth.
Marian Mexico also worked with their employees to host a food drive for the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank.
