National Honor Society to assemble care packages for homeless

The National Honor Society is a national organization with hundreds of chapters in high schools across the nation.  Acceptance into the society is based on scholarship, leadership, character, and service. St. Patrick’s National Honor Society prides itself on organizing several service projects throughout the year. For the club’s first project of the school year, members will assemble care packages for the homeless and donate them to Our Lady of Fatima.  Last year, the club assembled over one-hundred bags that were distributed to the homeless. 

This service project is a great way for National Honor Society members to earn service hours while giving back to the community.  National Honor Society President, Laurie Pisciotta states, “Making bags for the homeless people gives the National Honor Society members a great chance to reach out to the community and help those who are less fortunate”.

The National Honor Society is currently collecting items such as small notepads, pens, decks of cards, travel size shampoos, deodorant, toothbrushes, snacks, paperback books, and word games for this project. After school on September 22 and 23, the members will assemble these items into bags for distribution to the homeless.

Members can bring the items to Mrs. Wilkinson’s office.  Make sure your name is on your bag of items so that you will receive credit for participating in the service project. If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Wilkinson or any of the club officers.  We look forward to seeing you next Thursday and Friday after school to help!
