Rakin' in the Awards....Another National Winner!
Last week I posted information on the national FCCLA award winners from Trenton High School and Troy Middle School...today I received more great news. Congratulations to Humansville R-4 FCCLA on winning the 2009 National Community Service Middle School Award! They will receive their award at the 2009 National Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
The goal of the FCCLA chapter’s project, “Stop Hunger,” was to call attention to the lack of support for their Harvest Fellowship Food Pantry. The food pantry which serves approximately 250 families annually had been without food from July through September of 2008. In order to raise money and collect food items for the pantry members held a school-wide food drive and placed collection containers around local businesses. The FCCLA chapter collected more than 6,000 items to be donated to the pantry.
Thanks Humansville FCCLA, for making such a positive difference in your community!
