Catalyst Maria National Honor Society News

The CM National Honor Society volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House last week to prepare a meal for the families staying there.  The NHS sold candy grams for Valentine’s Day to raise the money to feed 20 people- pictured below are NHS members and staff leaders:

National Honor Society also collects unused food from the Friday bagged lunches, and instead of the food going in the trash, they take it to PADS shelter each Friday (pictured below).
