Local kids chip in, make donations to Cheer Club

From left, Marquette-area residents Kallee McCone, 14; Bailey Ingram, 6; and Xavier Ingram, 12, smile as they hold toys they donated to The Mining Journal’s Cheer Club on Friday. The Cheer Club, which kicked off on Friday, collects unwrapped toys and gifts to be donated to local children and families in need during the holiday season. Gifts can be dropped off at The Mining Journal’s office; Range Bank locations in Marquette, Harvey and Negaunee; Thomson & Metivier PC; Gwinn Ace Hardware; Salvation Army’s locations in Marquette and Ishpeming; and the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. Gifts are distributed to local families through St. Vincent de Paul in Marquette and the Salvation Army of Marquette County. (Journal photo by Cecilia Brown)
