Marathon Middle/High School & Community Events

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

********************

Attention Marathon Community . . .

The Marathon High School Girls Volleyball team is partnering with the Coral Shores Girls Volleyball team to collect items to help those in the panhandle in Florida that lost so much in Hurricane Michael. Here in Marathon, we certainly know how they feel.

Please consider donating useful items (think of what you could have used last year) such as . . .

Bottled water

Clothing (remember it’s cold up there)

Blankets

Shoes

Toiletries

Gift cards to Publix and/or Home Depot

Coach Freeman will be collecting items over the next few weeks and the goods will be delivered to the Florida Panhandle after the Thanksgiving holiday. Items can be brought to the MHS front office and labeled “PANHANDLE”.

Please ask your friends and family that you will see over Thanksgiving break to consider giving to our Florida family in need. Thank you!!!
