The Holiday Baskets food drive is a 34 year holiday tradition at North Salem High School. The tradition is an outreach to less fortunate families in the greater Salem area. Each year our Holiday Basket staff partner with an outside non-profit agency (this year it is Hope Station) to identify families that would benefit from food and gifts during the holidays. This year our staff and students are supporting 43 families.
In partnership with the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce, Salem-Keizer high school students got to participate in this year's Career Connections program. Over 900 students went through mock interviews with local businesses and got invaluable experience and preparation for the future. The event was held on May 30, 2013 at the Salem Convention Center.
