Building Baskets to Benefit the Community

In addition to being academically gifted, members of the Robert Frost Middle School National Junior Honor Society recognize the importance of giving back, especially during the holiday season. To make a positive impact within the community, Deer Park students came together to sponsor a Thanksgiving food drive.

The middle school students crafted posters and made daily announcements to encourage their peers to donate nonperishable food items to the cause. Following weeks of collection, students volunteered their time to sort the cans, boxes and bottles and created complete meals, from snacks to desserts, for families in need to enjoy. The Thanksgiving meals were distributed to families in the community prior to the holiday.
