NHS Canned Food Drive
NHS donates canned goods to the food pantry twice a year in November and April. These months are chosen to correspond with the Thanksgiving and Easter holidays.
“These are the two busiest times each year for the food pantry and when they are in the greatest need,” said NHS Sponsor Jaye Brewster.
NHS members are required to, and agree to, bring in ten canned goods each semester. The organization will collect approximately 1,000 this semester.
“It is important for us to donate to our local food pantry because we are helping our community, which means our classmates are benefiting, as well,” said Brewster.
NHS sponsored a school wide food drive first semester and collected around 3,500 from the school corporation.
If you are wanting to donate goods, direct them to Mrs. Brewster’s room or the office.
