Marshall Road Elementary Gives Back to Veterans
School partners with Vienna American Legion to donate money to the area's homeless veterans.
What began as a drive for Marshall Road Elementary School students to bring in "just $1" ended this week in a more than $500 donation to local military veterans.
The school recently partnered with Vienna's American Legion to raise a total of $532 to help homeless veterans in the DC metropolitan area, Eachus wrote to Patch.
The donation hit home in a number of ways — including for Assistant Principal Gary Hinson, a veteran himself, Eachus said.
The project was part of the school's "Big 10" campaign to complete 10 service projects this year.
