NHS and Food Shelf Awareness Month

It's food shelf awareness month and the Kimball Area Food Shelf has just happily recieved a large donation from the Kimball Area National Honor Society to kick it off. In the middle of February, the organization held a food drive at the high school. There was a competition between grades to bring in the most food to win a trip tubing at Powder Ridge. The eighth grade took the lead bringing in a total of 252.6 pounds of food and $241.72. In addition to the first place winning a trip tubing at Powder Ridge, the grade coming in last place will have to clean the ditches along the stretch of highway the school holds with the Adopt-a-Highway program. The grade coming in last place was 10th grade. They will be cleaning the ditches in the spring once the snow has melted. Overall, the food drive was a success. As a school, a total of 1065.21 lbs and $940.25 was brought in. This was one of the manyÊprojects the Kimball NHS has completed over the course of the year. There are still more to come, so keep your eye out for the good works done by the Kimball Area National Honor Society.
