MU facilities helping local agencies

HUNTINGTON -- The Marshall Recreation Center and the First Year Residence halls are partnering with local agencies and children in the Huntington Community with a program called "Rec the Halls with Holiday Hopes."

Wish lists are being collected from local agencies, including Golden Girls, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Tri-State, Ronald McDonald House, A.D. Lewis Community Center and NECCO.

The wishes will be hung on a tree in the lobby of the Recreation Center and in the South Residence Hall. People can stop at either location to collect a wish to fulfill. The person collecting the wish is asked to purchase the item listed and either drop it off at the Rec Center before Dec. 13 or bring it to the wrapping party.

A wrapping party will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, to wrap the gifts for the agencies.

For more information, contact Assistant Director Michele Muth at 304-696-2943 or by email at pallante1@marshall.edu.
