NHS Service Sale returns after seven years
For the first time in seven years, the National Honor Society ran its service sale fundraiser, with donations going to Cougars in Need.
The purpose of the service sale is to raise money for Cougars in Need, which provides low-income families at Conant with the supplies and support they need. NHS members put their names and a service, such as wrapping gifts, into a Google form on Schoology, where faculty can then select the service(s) they want. Instead of paying the student, the staff member will donate the money to Cougars in Need.
NHS Advisor and Modern Cuisine teacher Jacqueline Brown said, “The teachers will donate whatever amount they see fit for the service. Some will donate $10. Some will donate $15.”
Over 50 students have signed up for a variety of services.
NHS Advisor and Social Studies teacher Jeffrey Stewart said, “Students offer babysitting, school assistance, and holiday help like wrapping gifts.”
Some students’ services have been selected by faculty.
Himal Patel, ‘18, said, “I am gift wrapping as my service. I am providing my service for Mrs. Chriske-Hines.”
Christian Hernandez, ‘18, said, “[Himal and I] want to be able to help out our teachers, who are very busy during this time of year because of finals. We want to be able to help the teachers who help us.”
