Friends & Ambassadors of Maggie’s
Join the FAM
Friends and Ambassadors of Maggie’s or FAM is a support group for The Magdalen House. Members serve as mission ambassadors, help educate the community on alcoholism, and support Maggie’s through fundraising, volunteering, providing donations, advocating, and gifts-in-kind. FAM will commit to events such as letter-writing campaigns, hosting in-home education presentations and fundraisers, assisting in special events, and organizing donation drives for The Magdalen House clients.
Members can host small gatherings in their homes with a representative from The Magdalen House. Hosts invite their friends and neighbors for important education and discussion topics such as “What is alcoholism?” Topics can be geared towards the age of the attendees.
Members can invite The Magdalen House to do an education presentation on the disease of alcoholism and how the Magdalen House supports alcoholics in North Texas and beyond. Our education presentation provides one CEU (Continuing Education Units).
Lunch & Learn
Members can invite a group of interested individuals (3-12) to The Magdalen House for a tour, lunch, and alcoholism education presentation.
Members can host a Magdalen House recovered alcoholic team member at their home to speak about his/her experience with the disease and recovery and present opportunities for individual and group fundraising.
Members can host a Facebook birthday fundraiser, create their own fundraising pages for North Texas Giving Day, or create a post on their preferred social media platform that re-directs supporters to The Magdalen House donate site.
Host a Donation Drive
Provide some of our most needed items by hosting a drive. Items include paper goods, hygiene products, bottled water, Gatorade, candy, coffee, etc.
Members can volunteer individually or as a group for special projects at the house, such as providing holiday dinners, cleaning and organizing, and providing support to the staff by donating meals for appreciation events.
Members can host donation drives for house needs and for special occasions such as back-school and holidays.
