The funds will be used to purchase a computer … With the new computer, Little Debbie’s will be able to provide an on-site GED program for the girls who find it difficult to attend regular high school classes. -- Ms. LaKisha Stiggers, Executive Director
(PRWEB) December 21, 2011
The Merry Marauders, a self described “fun-anthropic” group of charitable characters organized independently by Jackson & Coker associates, recently gathered in Atlanta, GA for a unique charity event. Attendees were required to not only don their best and most creative holiday costumes, but also to provide a monetary donation to benefit local Atlanta area foster homes. As The March of the Merry Marauders progressed through the streets, the costumes worn by the attendees served their intended purpose of drawing positive attention to the event and cause, raising additional funds from entertained passers-by.
The donations collected were matched by an anonymous sponsor, which brought the total to over $1,300. These funds, in their entirety, will go directly to Little Debbie’s Second Chance Home, Inc. (LDSCH), an Atlanta based non-profit organization that provides a structured and nurturing home for displaced adolescent females, teen parents and their young children. Ms. LaKisha Stiggers, Founder and Executive Director of Little Debbie’s, said that the funds will be used to purchase a computer and software for the girls to access an in-house GED program. A delighted Ms. Stiggers explained that, with the new computer, Little Debbie’s will be able to provide an on-site GED program for the girls who find it difficult to attend regular high school classes.
Jackson & Coker associates have long been involved with many charitable works during the holiday season and this event is yet another avenue to provide much needed assistance to those less fortunate, during what can be a very difficult time of year for these children. Although the group’s efforts this time of year are far reaching in their donations of time, effort and resources, The Merry Marauders will look to extend their spirit of giving throughout the New Year with a variety of upcoming and ongoing events and sponsorships.
