National Honor Society participates in Holiday Help Project

From Nov. 22 to Dec. 16, the National Honor Society chapter at Hays High School is participating in the Holiday Help Project.
Each NHS member was given three or more grocery lists that were requested by a family to purchase over the holiday season. Some of the grocery lists include ingredients to make a pizza, just some kitchen essentials such as flour and sugar, and paper and hygiene products.
“I’m happy to have opportunities like this to help out other people, especially around the holidays,” NHS member senior Tanner Werth said. “It’s a really great project for the community.”
The NHS completes many service projects throughout the year, such as being Salvation Army bellringers and selling programs at basketball games and wrestling tournaments. The Holiday Help Project has a total of $260 worth of grocery lists to help 10 families.
“These families have at least one child that attends HHS. The families are working hard to provide for their children but could use the additional help over the break from school.,” said NHS sponsor Kyala Brown, “By providing groceries and gifts, these families can enjoy a happier and less stressful holiday. This project allows the NHS students and HHS faculty and staff to care for and help our HHS families.”
