You would create a contact object in active directory and add the email address.  Then you can attach it to the group.

Although depending on how many users are involved, it might be a better idea to outsource the list to any external provider. Many of the external providers have a free tier for small lists and a small number of messages. Saves clogging up the AD with contacts which you need to maintain.
