Sam’s Club Grant Supports Start School Right

We are excited to share that the Marion School Foundation recently received a grant from Cedar Rapids Sam’s Club No. 8162 to support Start School Right. In 2022 this program provided school supplies, clothing, hygiene items, shoes, food and more 377 students and 177 families.

Our hope is that no student arrives to school on the first day without the items they need to learn.  Start School Right is made possible through the gifts of time, talent and treasure from many in our community.  If you would like to get involved or your family needs support, please contact our office.

Thank you to Sam’s Club for supporting education in Marion!
