Marshall Cafe to help local family


The Marshall Hall of Fame Café will be one of several drop-off locations for donations to the Thompson family, who lost everything in a recent house fire.

A woman and two young children were killed in the fire and five other family members remain with nothing. The Marshall Café will be accepting donations of any kind, but are particularly looking for clothing.

The five family members include three girls and two boys. Clothing sizes needed include women’s 12 long pants, women’s large shirts, women’s 14 pants, women’s extra large shirts, women’s extra large sweatpants, women’s extra large t-shirts, boy’s 14 pants and men’s small shirts.

When Marshall Hall of Fame Café manager, Marisa Milam, was asked why she thinks it is important for the café to be involved, Milam said, “It’s who we are as a co mpany. We love the city of Huntington and want to support the people in it as much as possible.”

Other drop-off locations for the family include Ronald McDonald House and FoodFair.
