MRS. SMITH RETURNS FROM HER HONEYMOON ONLY TO FIND AN OFFICE FILLED WITH FOOD…

Mrs. Smith, A HUGE NOTRE DAME FAN, spent the day dressed in Penn State clothing from head to toe!  The students at Marticville were challenged to fill her office with food for the food bank at the Loft, a program located in the Millersville Brethren in Christ Church.  The Loft is a program for Penn Manor families in need.  In addition to the food bank there are also household items, clothing and furniture.  Donations are always appreciated.

Although Mrs. Smith was not thrilled about wearing the Blue and White, she was thrilled with her students generosity.  Marticville Rocks!
