GHS National Honor Society Collecting Items for Needy

As the holiday season approaches, members of the Greenfield High School National Honor Society hope to reach more than the 45 families they helped in 2011.

One year after helping 45 families in the Greenfield area, including many with students in the Greenfield School District, the Greenfield High School’s National Honor Society is once again taking on the task of helping the needy during the holiday season.

Between now and Thursday, Dec. 13, members of the National Honor Society are collecting donations of the following:

  • clothing – any size, new or gently used and clean;
  • non-perishable food items;
  • toys – gently used or new;
  • money – make any tax-deductible checks out to Greenfield High School.

You can drop off your donations at the Greenfield High School main office Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. First-hour classes will also be running a donation drive Dec. 4-13.

Once the items are collected, National Honor Society members will distribute the items to needy families in the Greenfield and Greendale on Friday, Dec. 14. Any donations remaining after the families are cared for will go to local food pantries and other charitable organizations.

Contact Renee Bykowski or Lisa Frey at rbykowski@greenfield.k12.wi.us or lfrey@greenfieldk.k12.wi.us with questions.

I'm glad people are optimistic about helping out the less fortunate.

This activity is so needed in our community. During this economy, money is tight, jobs are scarce while childrens' wishes may go unfullfilled. This NHS project has grown over the years to help so many families and organizations facing difficult times. NHS Advisers Renee Bykowski and Lisa Frey do an excellent job in organizing this event. Please consider cleaning out your closets, raiding your pantry, purchasing a toy, and/or donating a tax-deductible cash gift (to purchase food certificates). The main office at Greenfield High School will be glad to accept your donation. You will receive feelings of satisfaction and fullfillment for your acts of kindness toward others. Happy Holidays!
