Although the holiday season is well underway and many are focused on shopping and the presents they will be receiving, the Warriors have several opportunities to give back. Operation Care Package, Blanket Drive for the Homeless, Toys for Tots, and the NEHS Book Drive are all donation opportunities here at Osceola this holiday season. Operation Care Package is one of the many donation drives that is available at Osceola, the donations go to our overseas troops. Items that can be donated include nonperishable foods and necessities such as batteries and deodorant, there is a list of items needed on the school website. Donations can be dropped off in the office, Ms. Thompson’s room 100, Mrs. Thompson’s room, room 102, and Mr. Mattheus room, room 110. The Blanket Drive for the Homeless is being run by the Key Club and the donations of new or gently used blankets is being accepted in the front office. Toys for Tots is being run by NHS and has been on going here at Osceola for 20 years. The NHS is hoping to get over 500 toys, similar to previous years. New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off in the front office, library, guidance, or Ms. Ferguson’s room, room 282, anywhere from November the 30th to December the 14th. No used toys, no gift cards, no clothing, or handmade items will be accepted.

The majority of presents are needed for children ages from 0 to 12, but items for teenagers are also appreciated. The National English Honor Society book drive is another opportunity for Warriors to give back. NEHS is collecting new or gently used books to donate to various charities, and books can be dropped off in Dr. Herzhauser’s room, room 501. “Although we’re all focused on getting gifts, I think it’s really nice that we have the opportunity to give to those who don’t have as much,” said freshman Chance Reynolds.
