Community service is an important part of being a member of the National Honor Society. The holidays can be a trying time for those in need, so Duanesburg's NHS chapter lends a hand at the Salvation Army in Schenectady, with support from the DCS Student Council and Food Services staff. Here's a report from a current NHS member Alison Fiorini:

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, the National Honor Society went on their annual trip to the Salvation Army Meal site. Every year, the Student Council donates money so that the NHS can buy food to create a meal and serve it to the patrons of the Salvation Army. The delicious meals are made by our own kitchen staff.

This year, the NHS served ziti, salad, fruit and desserts, as well as hot and cold drinks. The students concur that the experience is rewarding to participate in. Additionally, students have the opportunity to serve meals to people of various backgrounds and offer a service to the local community.

Patrons appreciate the warm, delicious meal and get to have food brought to them by student servers rather than waiting in a line to pick up food. Several recipients of the meals expressed their gratitude towards the students. The NHS advisor, Mrs. Della Rocco, joined the students on the trip and helped to ensure that the day went smoothly.

The NHS would like to express its gratitude toward the Salvation Army for providing this opportunity, as well as the kitchen staff and Student Council for their support.
