Efforts by students in the Groveport Madison National Honor Society (NHS) will enable five families in need to have a bountiful Thanksgiving this year.
"These are great kids doing great things," said Groveport Madison High School Guidance Counselor Debbie Fannin. "They are just caring kids."
Fannin said the NHS is providing each of the five families with a $200 Kroger gift certificate so the families can have a Thanksgiving feast they normally might not have been able to enjoy.
Fannin said the NHS, lead by its President Mary Bui and Vice President Quintin Jones, makes it a point to give back to the community year round.
"They raise money all year long through raffles, sales, and donations to help fulfill whatever need comes up in the community," said Fannin. "It’s an ongoing process. About once a month they try to do some project."
Fannin also noted that, just recently, the NHS provided a $500 Home Depot gift certificate to a family whose home had burned. The gift certificate helped provide materials for the family to secure their house until it could be repaired.
