MARRS is dependent entirely on the generosity of others to fund our operations. We are thankful for the following Asheville areas churches and organizations that have supported us with grants and donations over the past 18 months:
- Cathedral of All Souls: Two donations totaling $3,000
- Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville: $2,433
Asheville Breakfast Rotary Club: $1,000
- Central United Methodist Church: $1,000
- Trinity Episcopal Church: $930
- Lions Clubs: $200
We’re also grateful to individuals who have made tax-deductible financial contributions to MARRS and encourage friends and their church and civic groups to do the same. We’d also like to acknowledge those who have supplied us with in-kind gifts, including Smith Dray Line, which generously donated much-needed furniture for our office and studio.

Our apologies to visitors to our website over the past week. We encountered some pretty intense technical issues and that resulted in the site being down for a week.
We want to give a shoutout to the good folks at Skyrunner Internet Service for going above and beyond the call of duty to help us resolve the problems.
Thank you, also, to the designer of our site, <a href="http://greenstoneagency check it out.com/greenstone-team/” target=”_blank”>Greta Anderson, now of Greenstone Media, for her assistance as well.
We are so appreciative of partners in the community who help use serve those with blindness and visual impairments.
