Students in Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s World Language Honor Society recently stayed after school to fill 72 shoeboxes with toys, toiletries and school supplies that they collected for Operation Christmas Child.
These boxes, sent to humanitarian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse, will be distributed around the world to children in need this holiday season. The students also included a picture of the group and a personalized card in each box. The group then packed their cars and headed to the nearest drop off site — The Island Christian Church, located in East Northport.
This is the honor society’s second year participating in this act of holiday kindness, and advisors Ms. Nicole Correia and Ms. Nicole Gendjoian hope for it to continue annually for years to come.
