The Logan High School Prayer Club faced the challenge of our county’s economic crisis and supplied Thanksgiving food boxes for 180 families. The original goal of the LHS Prayer Club was 150 families, but numerous phone calls from less fortunate families caused the group to continue to assemble the food.

The Thanksgiving food baskets were distributed to families with children in the Logan County area, especially the schools on Midelburg Island. The Prayer Club collected canned and boxed food from students and staff for a month before the event. Logan Middle School’s service project this year was to assist in this effort to fight poverty. Logan Grade also partnered with the Prayer Club to ensure more homes had food for the holiday.

“Never has there been such a need in this area. Mining jobs have been lost and a lot of folks are stripped to meet the daily necessities for their families.” John E. Godby, Prayer Club’s adviser, said.

The Logan High School Prayer Club meets each Tuesday at 11:35 a.m. in the school’s Little Theater for an inspirational gathering.

“The Prayer Club attempts to follow the footsteps of Jesus by doing good will toward fellow students,” Godby said.

The motto of the Prayer Club is “Committed to the Spiritual Welfare of the Logan High School Student Body”. The Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter Food Drives is one way this is fulfilled.

“The Prayer Club thanks each person whom made a monetary contribution from the staff and the community,” Godby said.
