NEWBURGH - Students at Horizons on the Hudson in Newburgh came together recently to help others in the Newburgh community. In conjunction with the Kids Can! One Can Food Project, the Horizons on the Hudson National Elementary Honor Society chapter launched its in-school canned food drive service project.
Every month, HOH Honor Society students will introduce the service project to a new grade level. Students will be asked to bring in nonperishable food or personal care items. Members within the food drive committee created posters to advertise the project throughout the building as well as to use to label the donation boxes which will be housed in each classroom. After each grade cycle, they will work collaboratively to recover donation boxes from grade classrooms, count total items donated by grade, photograph donations and repackage items for delivery. This project will be ongoing throughout the entire school year.
