Beta Club Helps the Community

Every month, the AHS Beta Club participates in at least one community service project to lead others by serving our community.

These projects include coat drives, volunteering at the soup kitchen in Sherman, and Adopt a Highway, along with many other projects.

The AHS Beta Club has a portion of Highway 5 from Melissa to Anna that they have “adopted.”

Once every semester, Beta Club members meet at the Post Office on a Saturday morning to pick up trash off the side of the highway.

November 11th was the first semester’s Beta Community service project for the Adopt a Highway initiative.  

“Beta is about serving our community, and I believe that Adopt a Highway is a great way to foster community pride by improving our environment,” said AHS Senior Rachel James.

The AHS Beta Club is also participating in Operation Christmas Child, which is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.

Operation Christmas Child’s mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

According to Operation Christmas Child’s website, simple gifts are shipped outside of the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

This is the first time that the AHS Beta club will participate in Operation Christmas Child as members are filling boxes for children of all ages.
