PCSC Holiday Present to Marshall County

We all know that the real spirit of the holiday season is giving and not receiving. It is for that reason that staff and students from Plymouth Community School Corporation are pleased to announce their large gift to the Marshall County United Way Fund.

Last year, Plymouth Schools gave $16,568.00. This season, the staff and students increased their gift to $23,256.00, nearly fifty percent more than last year.

Some notable contributions include 100% of the Webster Elementary staff contributed, the Plymouth High School staff doubled their contributions from last year, and the Plymouth Community School Corporation students nearly doubled their gift from last year.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a multitude of thanks for working with a wonderful group of people!
