This year the St. John’s chapter of the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), decided to help collect gently used sports equipment to donate to KidWorks. Kidworks is a non-profit organization which helps children in Santa Ana, by providing academic enrichment, leadership and character development.
The service project committee this year was comprised of four members: Chanel Soler, Chanel Kruse, Sydney Byrnes, and Ella Horwich. This committee organized collection of the equipment, coordinating dates with Dr. Hollatz, making announcements for Chapel and Slices, and assigning NJHS members to teachers in each grade from kindergarten through 8th grade.
The donation got off to a slow start, but quickly gained momentum. In the end it can be seen how generously St. John’s students donated. The winning class, 8th grade, received a free dress day. They collected almost two hundred pieces of equipment. It was a job well done, both by the students and the NJHS members!
