National Honor Society gathered together to send cards to deployed military and first responders this holiday season.

“I believe that while something like a Winter Social is crucial for maintaining the closeness and camaraderie of the members of a club like the National Honor Society, it is necessary to have some kind of tangible product that makes the time spent worthwhile, making a difference in someone else’s life, even if it’s only a few people,” said NHS President Keano Rich. “For this reason, we not only collected 117 cans of food for those in need, but spent the afternoon writing cards to deployed military and others with similar jobs, to give them a reminder of the holiday spirit and hopefully boost their morale, should they be in need.”

Members gathered in the cafeteria after school on Dec. 7, 2018 to create specialized cards to share through Operation Gratitude.
