The challenge for this year's service project was to find an event that would allow all 47 seniors to participate in while still promoting social distancing, health and safety.

The NHS Coat Drive was chaired by members: Anthony McKeirnan, Emilee Henderson, Grady Lemma and Sydney Patton. Pictured above is Issaih Perez who volunteered for bin-delivery to a site.
