Well, this year our student council realized the pain and suffering of other countries. After the earthquakes in India and multiple ones in El Salvador we couldn't hold back our support. So, we organized a "Shoe Box Drive" where we passed out empty shoeboxes with lists of items that the Mercy Core and Northwest Medical Teams were in need of to help. It was really successful, we got clubs involved, homerooms...etc, etc. Lots of individuals brought in whole boxes by themselves. It was fantastic. The only sad thing was that we didn't help until tragedy struck. I encourage you to start a similar drive at your school, and if you do, email me for some more details and tell me how it goes. Reach out to those who need it.
