MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Volunteers from Room at the Inn were taking part in Spread Goodness Day all while honoring the late Phil Niemisto. Niemisto passed away in February of last year.
For years, Niemisto washed windows in downtown Marquette. Folks Friday were working along Washington Street in Marquette washing windows of businesses.
Room at the Inn's new Executive Director says it's great to be able to pay back the generosity they see throughout the year.
"Today this is really important because we're always on the receiving end of the generosity this community has to give and this is our opportunity to say thank you Marquette for all your generosity towards room at the inn," said Room at the Inn Executive Director, Nicholas Emmendorfer.
Many different groups across the area participated Friday in Spread Goodness Day. Be sure to check out other stories on our website here for others and check out the TV6 and FOX UP Mobile App.
