MRA Charity Fundraiser

​Each year, the Maryland Rehabilitation Association selects a charity to support with an event at the Conference. For 2019, MRA has selected Fidos For Freedom.

 Fidos for Freedom 

The mission of Fidos For Freedom is to enhance the quality of life for people in the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan community by providing specially trained hearing dogs, service dogs, combat-related PTSD dogs, and therapy dogs.

Fidos also educates the public about individuals with disabilities and about the benefits of assistance dogs and therapy dogs and the work that these specially trained dogs do for individuals with disabilities, children with reading difficulties, and patients in health care facilities.
 
This year MRA will once again be raffling off gift baskets donated by our generous vendors and DORS staff. Raffle tickets are $1 each for the baskets. There will also be a bake sale at the MRA table.
