Students at several Plymouth schools learned valuable lessons about giving during the month of December. Several classes took part in penny wars competitions to raise money for United Way of Marshall County, while others worked at their school store to support the local nonprofit organization.
Students from Menominee and Webster Elementary Schools and Riverside Intermediate School in Plymouth raised a combined donation of $876.98 for United Way.
Executive Director Linda Yoder and 2015 United Way Campaign Co-Chair Susan Wagner accepted the checks and congratulated and thanked the students for “their wonderful giving spirit.”
United Way of Marshall County provides financial support to 24 local agencies, who in turn offer education, health and financial stability programs.
Donations can be made in person at the United Way of Marshall County’s office at 2701 N. Michigan St. in Plymouth, by mail to P.O. Box 392 or online at www.marshallcountyuw.org. Call the United Way of Marshall County offices at 574-936-3366 for more information.
