Johnston High School holds annual food and turkey drive


As we continue throughout the fall season, Johnston High School is fully gearing up for Thanksgiving!

Currently two of our wonderful organizations are running successful campaigns to help those in need this holiday season.

First off, the JHS SADD organization, advised by Greg Russo, is running their annual canned food drive where students are inspired to bring in canned goods to support a good cause. We will then donate the cans to local food banks and churches within our community to support those in need.

It all comes down to competition though here at JHS! Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior homerooms all compete to hopefully be the victor of this year’s food drive! The winning homeroom is taken out to a breakfast at a local restaurant to thank them for their dedication and support to our effort.

The JHS National Honor Society chapter, advised by Emilia Ruggiero, also runs what is known as the “Turkey Drive” where students go around collecting monetary donations with cans.

Any and all donations are also forwarded to different churches in the area in addition to that of the canned goods to support in any other additional ways.

Together, the Johnston Senior High School community’s dedication to helping those in need throughout the holiday season is greatly appreciated as we hope to be able to support anyone this holiday season. It is truly something we all look forward to each and every year, and have a joy in planning.
