Mark and Alyssa Love, are making thousands of impacts on art students with intellectual disabilities by volunteering to teach art and crafts to the students at the Marbridge Foundation.
The Marbridge Foundation operates a residential campus south of Austin that provides work and living space for hundreds of Austinites with cognitive disabilities. Arts and crafts classes are one of the most popular activities for residents. With the help of Mark and Alyssa residents are being exposed to new art mediums and opportunities. To date, Mark and Alyssa have taught around 400 individual art classes, representing thousands of educational, sensory, and inspirational experiences for the Marbridge residents.
The staff and residents of the Marbridge Foundation are so appreciative of the Loves and their contributions to their organization they were named Marbridge Volunteers of the Year for 2020.
In recognition of their good deeds, RecognizeGood made a $1,000 donation in Mark and Alyssa’s name to the Marbridge Foundation, where Mark and Alyssa have devoted their time, talent, and heart. Special thanks to the Marbridge Foundation team for hosting us and Crown Trophy for donating a beautiful award to Mark and Alyssa!
