R.C. Murphy Junior High School’s National Junior Art Honor Society members lent their artistic skills to a worthy cause this winter as they designed shopping bags for a food pantry for the holidays. 

After discussing the importance of food pantries and the need to donate to them throughout the year, the students worked under the direction of adviser Lisa Cappiello to transform recycled paper bags into unique designs. 

The completed bags were delivered to an East Northport food pantry just before the December holidays.
