Take the Key Club Polar Plunge on March 13. Get wet and wild this Sunday for a great cause!
Join Marshfield High School Key Club members, family and friends as they brave the icy waves of Rexhame beach, Marshfield, at 9 AM on March 13th 2016, and raise money for our Norwell shelter.
Your donation helps fund shelter renovations
Proceeds from the Plunge will help fund the Club’s “extreme makeover” of family shelter units at the Friends of the Homeless of the South Shore’s Norwell facility.
“We are delighted to be working with the Marshfield High Key Club on an Extreme Makeover this spring,” says Herb Newell, Executive Director of Friends of the Homeless of the South Shore. “Michelle Herwono and her leadership team have done a phenomenal job planning and preparing to improve the living spaces for our guests. We look forward to working with them soon.”
