The 2017 donation brings Mary Kay's total investment in the program to more than $51 million.
Kirsten Gappelberg, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability for Mary Kay Inc. comments, "We know the holiday season can be a tough time financially for many families... Mary Kay Ash founded our company and emphasized the importance of giving back. It's part of our heritage and we're honored to continue the legacy of making a difference through this program and many others."
Recipients of the donation spans all 50 states including homeless shelters, children's group homes, schools, Native American missions, foster family services, domestic violence shelters, hospitals, preschools and after-school programs.
