MPSD Students Lead the Season of Giving

Miller Place High School’s National Honor Society Students Carry out Annual Food Drive

MILLER PLACE, NEW YORK (DECEMBER 2020)—With the holiday season here, the National Honor Society (NHS) students from Miller Place High School (MPHS) facilitated their annual school wide food drive. Led by NHS officers, students and staff aimed to provide non-perishable food assembled in the form of packaged baskets, filled with the donations as well as personal notes, for those in need.

Across the school, students were encouraged to bring canned and other nonperishable items into school each day to contribute to the school’s donations. As an incentive, students in the first period classroom that donated the most items were rewarded with a bagel breakfast to celebrate their classroom’s commitment to the cause. After donations were compiled, NHS officers assembled the items into baskets with hand written notes included in each.
