The holiday season is underway, and many students at Carlisle High School are embracing the season of giving, by baking cookies for the community this December.

These cookies, made by classes and clubs at CHS, were delivered to Project SHARE Mon Dec 10, then delivered to the less-fortunate in the Carlisle community in the weeks ahead.

One of the groups participating in this year’s cookie drive is Student Council, which is made up of 30 members. Each member was responsible for 6 dozen cookies, which means the Student Council donated over 2,000 cookies to families in need.

Cheney Thompson, a freshman and member of Student Council, is one of the students who participated in the cookie drive.

“I think this is a really cool thing that we are doing for the community,” Thompson said. “I am glad to be a part of a school who wants to put others first during the holidays.”

The National Honor Society, lead by Kim Felknor-Edwards and James Wilkinson, is also participating in this community service project.

Emma Gillum, the president of the National Honors of Society, is enthusiastic about the organization’s participation in the event.

“Project SHARE is such an amazing cause, and it feels great knowing that some aspect of stress will be lifted off someone during the holidays,” said Gillum.

Even some classes are getting involved in the cookie drive, including Sandra Stalnaker’s Family Consumer Science class. Her classes made a variety of treats, including chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies, with a goal of making over 200 dozen items.

Avery Gallahue, a CHS freshman and member of Stalnaker’s class, appreciated the school’s efforts to help those in need.

“I am glad that this school is participating in a project that can impact the community so positively,” Gallahue said. “Although cookies may be small in size, I’m sure they will brighten the faces of many people this holiday season.”
