HS Interact Club Organizes Seasonal Adopt-a-Family Program

Students at North Shore have once again shown that they have big hearts and understand the true meaning of the holiday season. The Interact club organized this year’s Adopt-a-Family program by inviting clubs and classes to participate and then matching the volunteer adopters with a local family in need. The volunteers took a wish list provided by their adopted family and purchased and wrapped gifts for all members of the family. Over 100 students and staff participated, and 14 families were adopted (with a total of 32 children). The Interact Club assisted by making gift tags to go on each sack of gifts so that they would reach the appropriate family. The bags were delivered prior to the holiday break and the recipients were truly grateful to be able to celebrate the holidays with the gifts that were provided.
