Clubs practice the idea “to give is better than to receive”
This holiday season, many clubs have taken the initiative to participate in acts of kindness around our community. Numerous club members have volunteered their time to bring happiness during the time leading up to Christmas.
Art Club will be handing out treats to THS faculty and staff between now and Christmas break. The club decided to do this to reward teachers for all of their hard work and show their appreciation.
JROTC is also raising money to donate to Toys for Tots, which is an organization that gives gifts to less fortunate children.
Multiple clubs joined in to contribute to Samaritan’s Purse. FBLA, Beta, and Interact Club packed shoeboxes for children ages 2-12 years old. The boxes will be shipped to different, poverty-stricken countries.
Interact Club also walked in the Danville Christmas parade on Sunday, December 4. Their volunteering consisted of holding banners for the event and handing candy out to the crowd.
Along with the parade, members were given various opportunities to get in the giving spirit. They could donate a toy for a child to Salvation Army and Smart Beginnings, volunteer at God’s Storehouse, or ring the bell for Salvation Army.
After the winter break is over, Interact Club will be participating in the Stop Hunger Now event, which will be held January 13.
