High School kids donate to local charity

MARQUETTE– One high school group had a little money left over, so they decided to put it to good use.

The Marquette Senior High Schools National Honor Society had around $250 available that they collected from previous years. So on Monday in the school’s library, they presented a check to Room at the Inn, a local organization which helps the homeless.

One member said that this organization was chosen to bring awareness to the homeless community in the area.

I think its a really great feeling; its a lot more personal that we can keep it here in the community, especially now in the holidays time, said Matt Millado, a member of the National Honor Society at Marquette Senior High School, Its really hard, winters in Marquette are really hard and its just a way for the National Honor Society and its members to reach out.

The representative of Room at the Inn who accepted the check said that it took around $100 a day to operate the warming center.
