Several NHS members worked during their lunchtimes from January 31st through March 4th selling American Heart Association items.  We had t-shirts, socks, bracelets, and paper hearts on which buyers could write their names to show their support of the work that AHA does.  They also sold items at the game on Feb. 4.  Though it is still a small-scale event here in Gobles, the "Red-Out"  game is becoming a tradition.  This is our 2nd year working with the American Heart Association, but COVID has prevented it from being all that it can be. " We certainly hope to make the event bigger and more successful each year," said  NHS advisor, Carrie Butler.  The purpose of the event is to create heart health awareness.  Posters went up in the halls with information to help students make good choices regarding getting enough sleep, drinking and eating habits, and finding time to exercise to keep their hearts healthy through their growing years.  Emily Baxter, NHS president, took responsibility for organizing the event which also included having heart health facts announced during the game.  Bottom line, the Gobles chapter of the NHS is sending the AHA $2o5.25 and hopes to double that amount next year!
