In addition, the Marx Fund was able to assist our North Lawndale Unit when we held a special event during spring break 2013 for our clients. We had a viewing of the movie, The Interrupters. The Marx Fund provided lunch for our clients after the movie while we had a group discussion of what they just watched. The clients appeared to really enjoy themselves!
While the Marx Fund will always use the old-fashioned ways of managing and publicizing its work, we have created this website to let everyone know about the work we do for the young people of the Juvenile Court. We have expanded our fundraising effort by incorporating Kindful–a service that helps us manage our operations. And we’re going beyond Facebook: We are now on Twitter and LinkedIn.
This is a lot of change for the Marx Fund and we are doing this because one thing has not changed; we are still dedicated juvenile justice professionals who firmly believe in exposing youth to social, cultural educational and recreational activities that they otherwise may have not had the opportunity to experience. No matter how much the world changes in the next twenty five years, we’ll still stick to our mission.
