Haight family gives back to Marsh youths

VW independent/submitted information

Again this year, an egg hunt was the highlight of Easter Sunday on The Marsh Foundation Campus. It was all made possible by the Shirley Haight family, which sponsored the festivities for the sixth straight year.

Marsh logo 8-2010Haight’s daughter, Cindy Henderson, went above and beyond again this year to make Easter even more special for youths currently residing at The Marsh Foundation.

In the 1940s, 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 youths 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 residents.

The mission of The Marsh Foundation is to inspire hope, to teach and to care for children and families. For more information about The Marsh, visit
