When the floods hit our community, Chevron was there from the beginning by supporting clean up efforts, volunteering their time, and donating needed supplies. They have continued to support Marshall County throughout the recovery process, donating $10,000 focused on short and long term recovery of those affected by the flooding. The FRN is happy to partner with an organization that cares about the citizens of Marshall County and supports community efforts from the beginning to the end of a project. Thank you Lee Ann Wainwright and Chevron for your commitment to our county!
It's that time of year again! In preparation for the new school year, the FRN provided school readiness packs to the 16 Pre-K schools operating in Marshall County. The packs contained a variety of LeapFrog items, included Pre-K Skills, Math Readiness, Addition or Alphabet Flipbooks, Flashcards, Draw Erase White Boards, and other educational items. We wish all Marshall County Schools students and personnel a great 2017-2018 school year!
Establishing a bath time and bedtime routine is very important for young children. Beginning as soon as 6 to 8 weeks, a routine can help your child feel more relaxed, which will promote sound sleep. The Marshall County FRN provided DHHR and the Gabriel Project with Mommy and Baby Bedtime packages to promote relaxation and routine. The packages included Burt's Bees diaper cream, soap, shampoo, and lotion for baby, and a body wash and other bath items for the mother. Informational resources on the importance of a bath time routine, resource guides, and other educational materials were provided alongside the packages.
Thank you to Hudson Premier Physical Therapy and Fitness for organizing an event last weekend to support flood relief efforts in Marshall County. We appreciate businesses like Hudson's and all of their supporters that came out to donate so many items, and raise over $1,000, to benefit citizens affected by flooding!
Thank you to Marshall County Fair Pageant participants for collecting hygiene items to donate to the Marshall County FRN Closet of Hope. To learn more about the Closet of Hope and projects implemented through this initiative, visit: http://marshallcountyfrn.com/closet-of-hope/.
