SNHS members were walking around campus collecting donations during lunch.

The Santaluces Science National Honor Society has made it their mission this month to help feed families in need this Thanksgiving Season. 

The Science National Honor Society members made turkey donation boxes out of milk cartons and went around campus collecting donations. The club also held a Thanksgiving walk on Wednesday, where all members of the club walked around campus during both lunches with the turkey cartons collecting donations. 

The club had an astounding success, raising over $300 dollars as many students were thrilled to donate. The money collected will help feed over 100 people this Thanksgiving.

The sponsor of the club Mr. Seenath expressed his appreciation for the club, “I’m very proud to be the sponsor of Science NHS. These students are all brilliant, have great compassion and motivation to help others. I’m looking forward to guiding them to better serve their community.”

All proceeds that the club raised were donated to CROS Ministries, an organization that helps serve the hungry in Martin and Palm Beach Counties. CROS Ministries has served more than 1,550,000 meals and distributed more than 873,533 bags of food for families. CROS Ministries partners up with other nonprofit and community service-based organizations to help make a bigger impact on the community. They provide food for low-income families so that these families can use the money for other needs. One of their foodservice programs “The Caring Kitchen” helps to feed the homeless, individuals and families with low-incomes, people with disabilities, veterans, seniors, men, women, and children – anyone in need of a meal. 

Many families can’t afford to have a proper Thanksgiving dinner and the Science National Honor Society saw this as a way of giving back to the community. With the help of Chiefs here at Santaluces, they were able to make someone’s Thanksgiving better.
