WHS Interact Club Invests in Community


Although the new school year is just beginning, Washington High School’s Interact Club members have already made an impressive start in community service.  Last week, 80 students met in the cafeteria to make peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches and bag lunches for Tumbleweed Youth Shelter.  This week 93 students crammed in a classroom to make rubber band bracelets for children at a family homeless shelter, and a dozen more took a trip to a downtown soup kitchen to prepare and serve meals to over 600 guests. 


The Interact Club at WHS has been certified by Rotary International as the largest active Interact Club in the world.  With over 80 events planned for this school year, Interact welcomes every student on the campus to participate in a community service activity that not only improves someone else’s life but also makes Interactors feel appreciative of their own lives and circumstances. The 300+ Interactors at WHS truly do put “service before self.”
