Interact spends holiday season serving others

Members of the Liberty High School Interact Club is conducting a school-wide toiletry drive. Proceeds will be split to assist the Monticello Federation for the Homeless and solders who have been stationed overseas.

Students find the hard work of raising funds, purchasing gifts and delivering them very rewarding, Mrs. Penny Medina said. “Mrs. Medina is an English as a Second Language teacher at Liberty High School and also acts as the Interact Club’s advisor.

The mission of the Interact Club aims to show students how to overcome obstacles, such as distance and cultural barriers while learning to embrace other children and teenagers like themselves around the world.

The Interact Club at Liberty High School is sponsored by the Liberty Rotary Club. Together, members from both groups made a holiday monetary donation to a Rotary Club in Moca, Puerto Rico to help purchase toys for 300 families that were displaced from the hurricane this past fall.
