HHS Community Collects Food for Local Food Banks

A food drive spearheaded by the National Honor Society (NHS) at Howell High School resulted in approximately 4,500 bags filled with food being collected to aid local food banks.

Partnering with Dermer Dreams, the Howell High School community teamed up to collect donated food. According to Dermer Dreams, the 4,500 bags equaled approximately 29,000 pounds of food. All the food collected went to the Howell Emergency Food Bank and Freehold Area Open Door.

This successful food drive was a joint effort with NHS, Howell students and staff, and community partners like Freehold Regional Education Association and Howell PAL.
