Middle Level Activities Chapter Makes Service Its HALLMARK A lthough only in its second year at the Scarsdale International School in Lahore, Pakistan, the National Junior Honor Society has already become known for its efforts to serve the school and community. Chapter members' commitment to service has been demonstrated through a variety of projects. Books on Wheels. NJHS members raised funds to purchase more than 350 books and a portable bookshelf for a school being run by a nongovernmental organization (NGO) for children from extremely poor families. "NJHS members spent time with the kids and read stories to the students in their classrooms," said NJHS adviser Amna Mekan. "We plan to provide this establishment with books on an annual basis." Tree Distribution. NJHS members gave trees to schools, planted trees on roadsides and in neighborhoods, and went door-to-door distributing plants. "They briefed residents about the importance of trees and how they not only add to the beauty of the neighborhood, but also save us from living in a forest of cement," Mekan said. "The initiative was much appreciated by the administration of the other schools." 26 leadership for student activities Ice Cream Day. Students, faculty members, and parents were invited to participate in an ice cream day fundraiser in which a variety of ice cream flavors were offered for sale. NJHS members collected 25,000 rupees (about $255) to purchase and donate wheelchairs and stretchers for a government hospital. Senior Center Visit. NJHS members visited 25 senior citizens ranging in age from 60-90 who reside at a local retirement home. Students befriended and interviewed the seniors, chatting and playing games with them. "The residents were pleased and delighted by the company that they received and they profoundly thanked the NJHS members for visiting them," Mekan said. Toys for All. NJHS members asked students to donate toys they no longer needed for the kids at the NGOsponsored school. "I am proud to say that we collected more than 1,500 high-quality toys and managed to bring smiles to the faces of those underprivileged kids," Mekan said. Tutoring Custodians. NJHS members stayed after school once a week for three hours to tutor custodial staff members using materials donated by teachers.
