As the month of December met its end, Northlake Christian School’s season of giving has only just begun. Every year, students and staff come together to serve their community through outreaches and donations to different organizations. One of the most favorited activities during November is the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox drive.
Each year, the high school joins up with the middle and lower schools to donate shoe boxes filled with toys and hygiene products to children in need. Students participating in the National Honors Society and Northlake’s Key Club were each required to bring one shoebox as a part of their membership obligations. Other students and their families are encouraged to participate as well.   
Another favorite tradition celebrated was the annual “No Shave” November. Every male student attending Northlake is required to be clean-shaven, but by paying a fee of only $20 they are permitted to show off their facial hair for the entire month. All proceeds are donated towards families in need of a Thanksgiving dinner.
Northlake also holds a canned food drive throughout the month to provide for more families. Every item was sent to the Covington Food Bank. In total, the entire Northlake body donated a total of 2,472 pounds of canned goods.
To conclude the month, students were given a day outside of the classroom to volunteer at local organizations. The St. Tammany Parish Humane Society, Forest Manor, and Habitat for Humanity were just a few of the organizations in which these students served.
This years season of giving was a success for Northlake, and the expectations are set high for next year
