Marsh Foundation Grateful to Easter Celebration Donors

VAN WERT, Ohio – Again this year, an egg hunt was the highlight of Easter weekend on The Marsh Foundation Campus. It was all made possible by the Shirley Haight family, who sponsored the festivities for the eighth consecutive year.

The Easter egg hunt has become an annual tradition on The March campus that youth and staff both anxiously anticipates. The youth enjoy and the staff appreciates the extra smiles it brings to the youths’ faces. “The donations we receive from the Haight family are a double blessing,” said Kim Mullins, executive director of Child and Family Services at The Marsh Foundation. “The special day has an inspirational impact on our kids and the sizable, generous donation helps our resources to go even further.”

Haight’s daughter, Cindy Henderson and her family, went above and beyond again this year to make Easter even more special for youth currently residing at The Marsh Foundation. The family’s generosity and creativity are extremely thoughtful, even down to the smallest details.

“They think of all the details and their generosity each year makes Easter an extra special holiday on our campus.” In the 1940s, Shirley Haight came to live at The Marsh. Now, her daughters and grandson continue to give back to the campus at Easter time. The family provided eggs, baskets and gifts for all of the youth on campus. Although Haight passed away in 1988, her family has made a tradition out of donating. It was a memorable day and enjoyed tremendously by Marsh Foundation youth.
