National Honor Society and the new Eagle Nation Community Outreach club (ENCO) food drive to benefit the Hope Center was a success, with more than 1,000 items collected. Students delivered the items to the center on Friday.

NHS faculty sponsor Donnell Campbell said this a favorite project for the organization every year. “We love to donate to the Hope Center where our CM families go in their time of need,” she said.  “The service day—all the NHS kids working together—is a memorable day for everyone, our students and the Hope Center staff.”

ENCO faculty sponsor Racheal Leckrone said the organization strives “to bring together students and staff for the common purpose of serving our community. The group does monthly community service projects driven by student interest and community needs.” Another goal of ENCO is to offer all students at CM an opportunity to form authentic relationships through volunteer experiences, Leckrone said.

ENCO visited Bethalto East to read to the first graders and do Halloween crafts with them. “We also cleaned up the landscaping in front of the school as part of our school beautification project. We are currently partnering with NHS for the EagleWay Food Drive and with Student Council to ring bells for the Salvation Army,” she said.
