To donate stuffed animals for the City of Montgomery Police Department, National Honor Society, NHS, hosts a “Coffee and Cuddles” meeting in the East campus cafeteria on Thurs., Feb. 21.

“I had a lot of fun,” senior Olivia Egloff said. “Starting my day with a charitable act and cup of coffee really had a great impact on the rest of my day.”

NHS hosts informative meetings for members every other Thursday in the auditorium, but this meeting was slightly different. Members were asked to bring stuffed animals and meet in the East campus cafeteria for coffee and donuts.

“It was so awesome,” senior Jordan Schier said. “It was such a good way to get people involved.”
NHS members collected and donated over 100 stuffed animals to be gifted to the City of Montgomery Police Department. Police officers can give the stuffed animals to comfort children involved in traffic accidents or other stressful situations.

“I was able to buy stuffed animals from Kroger when they were on sale after Valentine’s Day,” senior Scott Lutte said. “It was nice donating them and knowing they will offer comfort for kids who need it.”
Starbucks on the lake donated enough coffee and supplies for all members to grab a cup during the meeting.

“It was a way to show our appreciation for their [NHS members] efforts in collecting and donating the stuffed animals,” NHS advisor Laura Sullivan said.

For students who do not drink coffee, hot water along with packets of tea and hot chocolate were provided. Schier said the addition of donuts and coffee seemed to be a “hit” among the students.

“More people brought donations and more people were in a great mood because of the coffee and donuts,” Schier said. “It was a such a great environment for students.”

Because this is the second stuffed animal collection that NHS has organized, Sullivan said it looks like it is going to be an annual event.

“I am happy to know that the stuffed animals will help children in difficult situations,” senior Victoria Johnson said. “I hope NHS continues this because it will greatly impact the lives of kids within Montgomery County.”
