As Northwood sleighs into Christmas, the National Honor Society will be participating in a community service drive for Common Ground’s Christmas Market. National Honor Society chooses a community service project to be involved in every year. This year, Honor Society is asking the whole school to get involved with the toy drive. The annual drive will start on the 13th of November, so everyone get your toys ready to bestow upon the families!

Common Ground’s Toy drive will held through November 13th – December 1st. Northwood’s homeroom classes will be competing to hold the most donations and whichever class collects the most wins a donut party. Your homeroom teacher will have the list of toys  or ideas for donating the items, so you can ask your teacher or look below at the list. Make someone’s Christmas special by giving a little kindness to those who need it most.
