This year, the Logan County High School chapter of Family Career and Community Leaders of America is making it their goal to make an impact on the school and community. In September, they conducted a very successful shoe drive. The entire club came together to raise over one hundred fifty pairs of shoes to send to the Soles for Souls organization based in Nashville. These shoes will go to places such as the Philippines which have been affected by natural disasters.
October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the club baked cupcakes to raise money for the American Cancer Society. They also designed “baking for a cure” t-shirts that were sold to benefit the society. For the club’s October meeting, Mrs. Tina Olson made her second annual appearance and spoke about her battle and victory over breast cancer. She is a six year survivor and provided the club with valuable insight as to how difficult cancer and treatment can be, but how anything can be overcome.
Currently, partnered with the FFA, the chapter is conducting their 16th annual canned food drive with a goal set at five thousand cans. During the past sixteen years, the school has come together to raise over eighty thousand cans to be donated locally. They hope to meet their goal once again to help families right here in Logan County during the holiday season.
FCCLA is out to make a difference this year and to grow their clubs influence. They hope to leave a lasting impression on everyone they help.
