LHS helps families over Thanksgiving break

Over that past month LHS students and faculty have worked together to collect non-perishable food. The food collected was put together into Thanksgiving baskets that were handed out to LHS families in need.

The food was collected through several different ways. Key club along with the help of NHS collected much of the food through “Trick or Treat for Cans”, an event held on October 30. The groups were able to collect cars full of food from neighboring communities.

Other students and faculty members also assisted with providing food as some teachers brought in food as well as asked students to bring in canned food if they were able to.

Once all of the food was collected with the help of members of Key Club and other LHS students, the food was sorted and put into baskets to give out to families the week of November 20.

These baskets were then given out through the counseling office. LHS social worker, Josh Hahn helped put together and organize the collection of the food as well as the giving out of the baskets.

For several years LHS has been creating these Thanksgiving baskets in order to help families afford food over the holiday. These baskets typically go to help out around fifty families in the LHS community.
