Donors Doug and Dellie Woodring

Marin Villages is a concept that really appeals to us. It has proven its worth during these times of COVID and natural emergencies when others might be totally isolated and alone. The flexibility of the Villages gives its members the chance to develop closer community ties while helping or accepting help from others. The ability to make new friends and know that support is a phone call away becomes more important each year as we age in place. Doug and Dellie Woodring
