National Honor Society students organize community-wide book drive


Several National Honor Society students from Marshalltown High School are pictured with books. The group is collecting books for a book drive with a goal to give a book to every third grader in Marshalltown.

Students in the National Honor Society at Marshalltown High School are running a community-wide book drive now through February 15. The goal is to collect enough books to be able to donate one to every third grade student in Marshalltown.

To achieve this goal, the MHS students are reaching out to the entire community and are asking for donations of new and slightly used books. National Honor Society members will then personally deliver the books and read with the third grade students.

Donation box locations have been organized all around town, including boxes at:

  • Marshalltown High School
  • Miller Middle School
  • Lenihan Intermediate School
  • Shomo-Madsen Insurance
  • Moore, McKibben, Goodman & Lorenz Law Firm
  • Downey and Gantz Dentistry
  • C Eye Care
  • New Hope Church
  • First Presbyterian Church
  • Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA
