National Honor Society service projects give back to community

Students smile and hold childrens books in their handsMarch 26, 2018 — Students in the Glens Falls High School chapter of National Honor Society have completed several service projects this spring, resulting in a big boost to children in our local community and beyond.

In February, student scholars donated $200-worth of children's books to the annual Project Cameron's Story "bookraiser" to benefit children and families in neonatal intensive care units across New York State. In the photo at right, NHS members hold a sampling of books that were contributed to the effort, including such classic titles as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," "Love You Forever," and "If You Give a Moose a Muffin."

The evening included Valentines' Day craft-making, basketball, face painting, snacks, games, and swimming for elementary students—all led by NHS volunteers. The well-attended event raised $1,400 for the Glens Falls Area Youth Center. "We would especially like to thank parents for their continued support for Kids Night," said NHS advisor Maureen Sara.

Nearly 50 students make up the GFHS chapter of National Honor Society. Read more about the group HERE.
