Jenny and Dave Marrs, the Bentonville couple from the hit HGTV show Fixer to Fabulous, have been named National Angels in Adoption honorees by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute. Sen. John Boozman nominated the couple for their advocacy of adoption and other critical services for children in Arkansas and around the world.
“The Marrs family is an amazing example of Arkansans putting love into action,” Boozman says in a statement. “Inspired by their faith, Dave and Jenny have a strong commitment and passion for orphan care, family preservation and adoption. They opened their hearts to adoption and have been powerful advocates for children and families around the world. Their devotion to uplifting kids in need and championing of such a worthwhile cause is something all Arkansans can be proud of.”
During a virtual event recognizing the two, Jenny Marrs said, “The main reason that we said ‘yes’ to this HGTV journey of ours is for us to have a platform to share about adoption and orphan care, family preservation, the things that we’re really passionate about and so honestly receiving this award is truly such a huge honor. This is really amazing because this is our heart and what is really important to us.”
