The Spring Valley High School Interact Club inducted 24 new members and its officers for 2018 in a special ceremony held on Thursday, February 1 with representatives from the Spring Valley Rotary Club and parents in attendance. The club now has 33 active members. Interact clubs offer young people the opportunity to work together to develop leadership skills and discover the importance of service.
During the current school year they have participated in a number of services to benefit the community including donating plastic bags for Project Bedroll, a project designed to keep non-recyclable materials out of landfills. The plastic bags will be crocheted into sleeping mats that provide an insulated barrier for homeless in our community who sleep on the ground. During the holiday season, they partnered with Winter Days to adopt a seven-year-old foster child.
They partner quarterly with the Spring Valley Rotary Club for an Adopt-a-Highway trash collection project and joined the ‘family of Rotary’ for the February 10 Rise Against Hunger Project held at the high school where more than 200 volunteers packed 40,000 meals for world-wide distribution through school feeding programs to children in need.
