The Kittatinny InterAct Club is all about community service. Whether assisting community programs directly, or inspiring a younger generation to give of themselves, these students demonstrate the difference one person can make in the lives of others.

InterAct students went to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside, to learn how to help fight hunger. They learned how vital the Foodbank is to food pantries, school programs, and individuals. They spent the afternoon bagging more than 1,500 pounds of pasta. The students also labeled and boxed them for shipment.

Some freshmen members of the InterAct Club went to McKeown school on Wednesday, Nov. 13. They helped the first graders color in holiday-themed pictures that were made into placemats. The placemats were donated to a local senior citizen nursing home.

InterAct members Samantha Burke and Sierra Lockburner, went to McKeown Elementary school to work with the sixth grade EarlyAct Club sponsored by the InterAct Club. These students spent the afternoon making paracord survival wristbands for soldiers in the military. The wristbands were donated to Operation Gratitude to be distributed to the soldiers.
