FCCLA Collects Food for Local Food Pantry
Ten FCCLA members met for their Annual Food Pantry Drive on November 8th. Members divided into groups and selected different areas of Plainview to ask residents for donations of non-perishable food items. Members spent an hour driving throughout Plainview collecting the food for our local Food Pantry. When returning, members counted the items for documentation for their state record keeping. Members were excited to find out that they had collected a total of 176 items. “Members want to thank the community for their gracious contributions. With these donations, families in our community will continue to have their needs met," stated adviser FCCLA Ronita Jacobsen. FCCLA Members will be delivering the food to the Plainview Food Pantry in time for Thanksgiving needs.
The night concluded with members holding their monthly meeting. Members were reminded that the November Red Cross Blood Drive was cancelled by the Red Cross due to staffing shortages. The FCCLA Christmas Party was set for Monday, December 5th at 6:30, with officers planning activities. Members drew names for a Crazy Sock Gift Exchange and made plans for a service project in December. Members interested in completing Power of One and STAR Projects will be meeting during Studyhalls for worktime.
