The National Honor Society organizes a food drive

The National Honor Society (NHS) is a national organization that promotes service and leadership. Many students are active and involved in this club at St. Patrick. The National Honor Society organizes many service projects throughout the year. This club gets students involved in helping the community and it introduces things to them that they could possibly become interested in. Service projects are great opportunities for students to get service hours while giving back to the community! One of the service projects that this club organizes is the food drive. NHS member, Makayla Pfarrer states, “One of the reasons that I joined National Honor Society was so that I would be involved in a club that participated in service projects. This food drive is a simple way to give back to the people who really need it. Just by bringing in a couple cans of food can change whether a family eats or not.”

The NHS food drive was very successful last year, and we would like to do well again this year. The National Honor Society is currently collecting items to donate to the less fortunate. Students are asked to bring canned food and non perishable items. The items can be dropped off to Mrs. Wilkinson her in office. If students have specific families in mind that are in need of food, please let the president of NHS, Laurie Piscottia, know.

The members will be packaging the boxes after school Thursday, November 10 and Friday, November 11. Anyone is welcome to donate; the more cans the better!
