Hoglan Elementary School held a “Pack the Pickup” drive for the House of Compassion to help with the shelter’s supply closet. Staff, students and families brought items to school and to the family picnic, which was held on May 13.
“We filled the truck,” said Hoglan Principal Amy Williams.
The supply closet at the House of Compassion offers supplies to those in need in the community. This is the second successful supply drive for the House of Compassion in Marshalltown Schools this spring as Franklin Elementary staff also held one last month.
