On Saturday, NJHS members met at Walmart to shop for needy families this Christmas. They raised $740 by selling donuts this year.

They used the money to purchase:
-Christmas wishes for 3 students in need.
-Stockings for 33 students in need.
-55 gift bags to give to the nursing home residents that they will be visiting and playing bingo with this week.


We are so grateful to these students, Mrs. Ramsdell, and Mrs. Reed and commend you for serving others. #seethebest #1Sparkman
