NHS continues St. Jude donations, has raised $50k overall

The Oswego High School National Honor Society chapter has continued its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Tennessee to help treat childhood cancer, as well as to fund necessary research in hopes of finding cures.
St. Jude is fully funded through donations and NHS has been helping raise funds since the club’s inception. 
“The mission of St. Jude has continued to inspire chapter members to be called to service and raise funds for the hospital through a letter-writing campaign to friends and family,” NHS advisor and Oswego High School social studies teacher Kayley Morse said.
All 72 chapter members recently gathered in the school cafeteria to personally sign 25 letters each. The NHS juniors and the Event Chairs for this project were Sophia Cahill, Audrey Donovan, and Brooklyn Saternow said the meaningful event brought everyone together to help those in need. Since its partnership with St. Jude’s, the OHS chapter has raised over $50,000.
“While we are providing service for a charity, the effort also builds character,” Morse said. “We’re fortunate for our health and to be able to do this.”
The chapter also hosted a No Shave November event earlier in the fall to raise funds for St. Jude’s.
Each NHS member typically completes beyond the over 20-hour minimum service hour requirement each year. 
The next project for NHS will be a diaper drive throughout the month of April to collect diapers and pull-ups to benefit the Oswego County Department of Social Services.
