There will be smiles on the faces of some happy children in the area on Christmas morning thanks to the efforts of the Royse City High School National Honor Society. The NHS students recently raised almost $150 for local children in need.

The NHS members each donated 50 cents to $1, or more, for the toy fundraiser.  One NHS mother also donated gifts to the cause. All money donated was then taken to Walmart by NHS officers who purchased the gifts, which were then taken to  the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.

The center is dedicated to providing “safety, healing and justice to children victimized by abuse or neglect.” More than 50,000 children and families have been helped through such donations since the center’s opening.

Every day, children victimized by abuse come to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County where they find caring professionals and dedicated community partners working together for the good of children,” according to the center’s website. “The members of the multi-disciplinary team co-housed in our Center dedicate themselves to seeking justice and helping ​children heal from abuse and neglect so they can grow up to be who they are meant to be.”

Senior Seeli Summers said the members of NHS wanted to do something special for children in the area during such an important time of the year, a time when many children don’t have the Christmas mornings they dream of because of neglect, poverty, or abuse.

“I wanted to do something for kids close to home, so I found this organization right in our backyard, Summers said.

NHS co-sponsor Kathleen Krumnow said this cause is just another example of a great group of students thinking of others above themselves.

“The NHS officers never cease to amaze me with their generous spirit,” Krumnow said. “I’m so lucky to work with such a selfless group of students.”

NHS is also co-sponsored by RCHS library media specialist, Christie Watts.
