Every year during Spirit Week, the middle and high school students raise money to donate to an organization.
This year, the donations will go to Ho‘ola Na Pua, a local organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating underaged sex trafficked victims. The organization provides support and healing for girls, through health, education, advocacy and reintegration. NHS chose this organization because of its local origins and with the hope that students will be able to see the impact their donations make in their own backyard.
Donors win Spirit Week points for their grade and here are the latest collection totals, as of the end of Thursday:
8th grade: $757.33
7th grade: $706.01
10th grade: $368.02
11th grade: $171.58
9th grade: $20.00
12th grade: $0
The last day to donate is Friday, the last day of Spirit Week. Donation cans are located in the mall area during lunch.
