NHS helping families through the holidays

Every year before Thanksgiving, the National Honor Society puts together Thanksgiving baskets for four anonymous South Lake families who can’t afford to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

“I just want to help a family through the holiday and help them feel the warmth that I feel on Thanksgiving,” said NHS President Eroll French ‘15.

Each NHS member is assigned a food to bring in to provide for the basket. And with each member assigned to one item, enough supplies are gathered to create four Thanksgiving baskets complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and other assorted foods.

“I love this time of the year. It shows what NHS is all about,” said English Teacher and NHS advisor Julie Bukowski.

Bukowski believes NHS is making it possible for families to have something and be happy this Thanksgiving.

“I’ve been doing this for 12 or 13 years and to know that I gave back, its become a personal satisfaction for me,” says Bukowski.

French agrees.

“I love to gain the experience of getting out there and helping families,” said French.
