NHS members make blankets for Ronald McDonald House

On Wednesday, Nov. 23, NHS members made blankets to donate to the Ronald McDonald House as a service project. Each student was responsible for bringing at least two pieces of fleece, which were cut in strips around the edges and tied, forming well-insulated blankets.

Junior Ashley Dundon enjoyed the service project. “Most people worked with a partner or in a small group, so we all helped each other,” Dundon said.

The 25 blankets that were made will be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House on Feb. 14, when NHS members will also cook a meal for those staying there.

Co-moderator of NHS Katie Caster was pleased with the turnout for the service project. “One of the pillars of NHS is service,” Caster said. “We are so blessed, and it’s important for us to share our gifts with the community since we are so blessed.”
