Marlborough students care for their community

Marlborough - The week of April 30 through May 4 was "School Spirit Week" at Whitcomb Middle School, 25 Union St., in Marlborough. In light of the recent fire that ravaged the Lake Williams Condominiums on West Main Street and displaced five Whitcomb families, the theme for spirit week was "We Care." In addition to donations of clothing, dry goods (canned food, snacks), entertainment (cards, sports equipment), gift cards, household items (sheets, towels), suitcases and duffle bags, and toiletries, students had other opportunities to participate - in monetary contributions throughout the week. On Tuesday, for example, a $2 donation bought an entry to win one of 50 free passes to Roller Kingdom in Hudson, on Wednesday, students were encouraged to donate coins during lunch and on Thursday, a $1 donation bought the ability to wear a hat during the school day (something which is usually not permitted).
