Marty Indian School is our newest assistance area and began at the start of the 2016 school year after elementary principal, Gina Curran, contacted us for help, more about the school here. A few of our members have recently visited the school and noted that while the school has many wonderful programs and teachers, the building and grounds are in need of repairs and updates.
SFK member, Penny Nickols, noted on her visit to the school last fall that the playground could really use an update. The playground currently serves 95 children.
Penny recently found a sweepstakes with a grand prize of a $30,000 healthy playground makeover that we can all enter to help them win. There’s an initial sign up page to complete where you’ll enter Marty, SD 57361 in the appropriate boxes after which two choices appear, click on “Marty Indian School”, fill in your information below and you’ll be registered. Return to the page every day and vote until March 24, 2017, the more entries the more chances to win. This is something we can all do, costs nothing and gives these deserving kids a chance to win a much needed playground.

Other ways we can help the school is by saving box tops from specially marked packages these items earns points which can be redeemed for various school needs. Please help by collecting the box tops and including them with your next shipment to the school.
