As part of this event, several 7th and 8th grade math classes competed to raise the most funds. Additionally, a group from the elementary school held a bake sale and contributed the proceeds to the fundraising drive.
"It is great to see school groups get involved in the fight against hunger," said Novak. The National Honor Society was excited to make a difference and to donate to North Country where every dollar can help provide food for up to five meals. "This is definitely our busy season at the food bank. More people need help during the holiday season. We are very grateful for the donation from the National Honor Society," said Novak.
There couldn’t be a more meaningful time than now to take a stand against hunger. Remember, hunger doesn't take a break during the holidays or any day. All contributions help enusre that children, families and seniors in our communities have enough to eat during the holidays and every day.
