RAK Club Christmas Party

By Mehar Nijjar, reporter

The Friday before finals the Modesto High Random Acts of Kindness Club had its very first Secret Santa Christmas party. Names were drawn in a club meeting a week in advance. Part of the fun of doing a Secret Santa is that it requires asking a person’s friends about what he/she would like. In this way, club members got to know each other better and surprise each other with either witty or meaningful gifts.

Everyone was welcome to this potluck event, including people who aren’t in the club. People brought different treats including homemade cookies, chips and salsa, candy canes, and more. The ambiance was set with string lights and the ultimate Christmas playlist. Altogether, around twenty people attended the Christmas party, with others dropping by before attending sports and other extracurricular activities. Students were able to unwind and enjoy a good start to their weekend before enduring the stress of finals week. Lucia Suarez, a junior said,”It was really fun getting together and having everyone be happy in the spirit of the holidays. It was nice seeing how big of an impact the club has on our everyday lives.”

Along with having a Christmas party, in order to give back to the community, the Random Acts of Kindness Club is hosting a teddy bear drive for foster children this Christmas. The drive consists of new and stuffed toys only and lasts a week and half for students of all grades. The club hopes to cheer up many foster children this year and give them a gift to remember.
