The Marshall Food4Kids organization's first major fundraiser, the Hy-Vee Food Drive, netted $951.43 worth in groceries and $1792.73 in cash donations. Marshall Food4Kids announced in September a campaign to raise $10,000 by January 1, 2014.
Total that has been raised so far is $4,740, which includes loose offerings several churches have taken and other donations from individuals in the community. There will also be several hundred dollars coming in from Albright United Methodist Church's yearly Baked Potato Supper, but the numbers are not yet finalized.
The next major fundraiser is tip night at the Marshall Pizza Ranch on October 28 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Volunteers will help serve guests at Marshall's Pizza Ranch October 28. The organization will receive donations in the form of tips from guests and a percentage of the sales that night.
