Donation to Mark Twain School's backpack program
Members of Sampson Masonic Lodge #298 in Theodosia on Nov. 7 presented a $300 check from the Masonic Home of Missouri to Mark Twain School superintendent Joe Donley. The funds will help support the school’s backpack program, which provides supplemental nourishment to those students who qualify for the assistance. The Masonic Home of Missouri matches funds from local Masonic lodges for certain benevolent initiatives related to the well-being of children.
