Three elementary schools receive $600 each
The Marshalltown High School boys swim team donated a total of $1,800 to three Marshalltown elementary schools to help families affected by the July 19 tornado.
Swimmers donated $600 each to Franklin, Rogers and Woodbury elementary schools, which had many families in the area affected by the storm.
Coach Mike Loupee said this was a service project led by the team this year as they raised money by placing a “Marshalltown Strong” phrase on the sleeve of the team shirts for an additional donation, collected change in the annual Change for Charity effort and worked a team fundraising evening at Pizza Ranch.
This was separate from a recent team fundraiser for pool deck chairs and deck coats for the team.
