The Mount Pleasant High School National Honor Society (NHS), ‘2018 Pet Food and Supplies Drive’ was a great success with 3609 pounds of pet food, treats, and toys collected between April 2 and 20.
“The Pet Food drive is our major community involvement project of the year,” said MPHS NHS Sponsor David Clark. “This year we invited the National Junior Honor Society and the National Elementary Honor Society chapters in the District to help us out. We are thrilled with the results.”
The E.C. Brice Elementary School National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) chapter collected more than all the other campuses combined with a total of 2190 pounds. The Mount Pleasant Junior High School National Junior Honor Society chapter collected 425 pounds while Vivian Fowler Elementary School NEHS chapter collected 419 pounds. MPHS collected 348 pounds. Other campuses and amounts donated were 100 pounds for both the Wallace Middle School NEHS and the Annie Sims Elementary School NEHS and 27 pounds for the Corprew Elementary School (NEHS).
“Representatives from most of the campus honor societies went with us the day we delivered the supplies to the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter,” Clark said. “I thank the other honor society sponsors for getting behind this project. Without their help, the project wouldn’t have been so successful.”
