Jeans

Marshalltown Schools staff donated hundreds of pairs of new and gently used jeans to The Caring Center in Marshalltown, which provides clothing for those in need. Pictured, from left, are MCSD Superintendent Dr. Theron Schutte, Lisa Villegas and Donna Patton of The Caring Center, Jim Kopel of MCSD Buildings & Grounds and Karen Weltzin of The Caring Center.

Employees of the Marshalltown Community School District donated hundreds of pairs of jeans to The Caring Center on Main Street in Marshalltown on May 22. The Caring Center provides clothing and other household items for those in need in our community, with jeans being a popular item among visitors.

Staff in Marshalltown Schools held a “Jeans for Jeans” day on May 17 where they were able to wear jeans to work if they donated new or gently used jeans to The Caring Center.

Thanks to Jim Kopel of our Buildings and Grounds department for collecting the 18 boxes and 10 bags of donated jeans from our schools throughout the district.
