Lenihan students present gift baskets to the Marshalltown Fire Department


Students in the Lenihan Intermediate School Teen Outreach Program presented gift baskets to the Marshalltown Fire Department on January 27.

Staff with the Marshalltown Fire Department were presented with gift baskets from sixth grade students in the Teen Outreach Program at Lenihan Intermediate School on Friday.

The baskets, which were funded by a TOP grant, featured snacks, athletic equipment and more.

“We decided since you guys were working so hard you should have supplies,” Lenihan student Ryan Morris told the firefighters.

TOP meets weekly at the school and teaches skill building, community service learning, self esteem building and other qualities to the students.

This was a donation from the Friday TOP group. The Monday TOP group recently made a donation to the Animal Rescue League and House of Compassion after leading a penny war.
