National Honor Society collects more than 5,500 items for SCCCP
Members of the Waterloo High School National Honor Society collected and donated more than 5,500 items and over $4,000 for the Seneca County Community Christmas Project this fall.
As part of its group service project, the Christmas Project Game, National Honor Society members partnered with other Waterloo High School students to create 29 teams to benefit the SCCCP.
The game included four categories of supplies for the Christmas Project: gift wrapping items, books and toys, socks and mittens, and money.
National Honor Society members packed a truck full of goods for delivery to the SCCCP on Dec. 12. Seven team leaders and NHS Co-Advisers Kris McGuane and Kim Lucas spent the day packing and wrapping items for families.
This marks the 17th year that the Waterloo NHS chapter has teamed up with the SCCCP. The Seneca County Community Christmas Project exists to provide for lower income families, with an emphasis on children, in Seneca County. Monetary donations can be sent to Seneca County Community Christmas Project, P.O. Box 651, Waterloo, NY 13165. Those wishing to donate can also contact Waterloo NHS Co-Advisor Kris McGuane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
