MARION, OH - The Marion City School District has announced that several schools will offer new "resource rooms" for students in need of basic household items. The rooms are expected to be open and available to students before the Thanksgiving Holiday break, and will offer food, personal hygiene products, clothing items, school supplies, and other materials.

"This project is being funded with grant dollars and donations," said Winnie Brewer, a Nutrition Services Supervisor with the school district. "Students at the middle and high-school age are much more independent than those at the elementary ages. We have a high percentage of students at Harding and Grant who walk to school, and our goal is to support those students' basic living needs."

Two days per week, students will be able to browse the Resource Room's items during their lunch periods. In case of emergency, students will be able to talk to an administrator to unlock the rooms and obtain necessary items on days that the Resource Rooms aren't open.

The Marion City School District educates more than 4,500 students in the city of Marion, Ohio throughout ten buildings, including Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, Hayes, McKinley, George Washington and Taft Elementary Schools, Grant Middle School, Harding High School, the Mary Ellen Withrow Middle School Academy, and the Mary Ellen Withrow High School Academy.
