North Shore High School Adopt-a-Family Program

Students at North Shore have once again shown that they have big hearts and understand the true meaning of the holiday season.  The Interact club organized this year’s Adopt-a-Family program by going out to commons classes and inviting participants and then matching the volunteer adopters with a local family in need.  The volunteers took a wish list provided by their adopted family and purchased and wrapped gifts for all members of the family.   Over 150 students participated and 22 families were adopted.  The Interact Club assisted by making gift tags to go on each sack of gifts so that they would reach the appropriate family.  The bags were delivered on December 20 and 21 and the recipients were truly grateful to be able to celebrate the holidays with the gifts that were provided.  Listed below are the individuals and groups who adopted families:
