MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Connect Marquette was just one group taking part in Spread Goodness day Friday. They partnered with the U.P. Children's Museum to fill bags with birthday goods.
Among the donations were birthday cake mixes, stickers, balloons party hats and more. It's part of the 'Every Child Deserves a Birthday' initiative. Members of Connect Marquette say it's part of community outreach.
"I think celebrating a child's birthday is something that everyone can rally around, I think that's what this event brings out in people, it's so unique and it really allows participation at any level, it's a lot of fun too," said Connect Marquette Board Member, Marina Dupler.
Many other groups around the u-p participated in spread goodness day. For more stories like this search our website here or check the TV6 and FOX UP Mobile App.
