Spreading Kindness and Compassion Throughout the Community
With the start of a new school year brings much excitement for the National Honor Society. Between blood drives, donation collections and hundreds of volunteer hours each month, this active club is very influential in promoting a sense of caring and a serving spirit at Camas High.
National Honor Society is a group comprised of the highest achieving Juniors and Seniors that Camas has to boast, all of whom commit themselves to at least four hours of community service every month. Looking at the accomplishments of this club is incredible, as their compassionate efforts each month can be seen to equate to projects like serving meals to those less fortunate, assisting the elderly in nursing homes, and giving up free time to provide aid at countless events around the community.
In regards to both past and upcoming events and outreach, NHS hosted a drive to raise socks for the homeless this month, cleverly titled “Socktober”, where they collected socks for a youth program in Portland called “Breaking Cycles”. Having clean, dry and, quality socks can be life changing for many who already face so much disadvantage and struggle.
On November 15th, NHS will also be hosting a Blood Drive in coalition with the Red Cross, an effort that has been very successful in past years.
If you are interested in signing up to donate blood or would like to consider applying for National Honor Society, talk to Mrs. Dignan in room 105 for more information.
