Stocking Drive Huge Success!

703 stockings for 703 well-deserving children at Benton Heights. Thank you fifth grade students for decorating the bags!

As a part of the SIT teams' goal of taking on one philanthropic event for the holiday season, Marvin families band together to give 700 students at Benton Heights stockings full of items.

Families throughout the end of November and beginning of December sent bags full of items for the students at Benton Heights. Once the bags were at Marvin, third, fourth, and fifth grade students sorted through the items, making sure each child at Benton Heights had items from every category to make their holiday extra special.

Students learned valuable lessons around giving back and what the true spirit of the holiday season is.

Thank you Marvin families for making this goal a reality! It truly shows how giving the Marvin community is.
