FBLA Offers Holiday Help

Posted on November 13, 2010 by


Ever wonder what those boxes covered with construction paper and pictures of turkeys are doing in your first period class?

They are more than just boxes—they’re boxes that will make a difference!

FBLA is teaming up with Friend Inc. to acquire food donations for Thanksgiving. Friend Inc. is a non-profit organization in Kutztown that helps those in need.

The holiday boxes in your first period should be filled with the following items: 2 cans of sweet potatoes, 2 cans of cranberry sauce, 2 cans of vegetables, 1 large can of fruit juice, 1 box or bag of stuffing mix, 1 bag of apples, 1 bag of potatoes, 1 can of cocoa or coffee, and holiday napkins.

Another upcoming fundraiser will be a game called Penny Wars. FBLA will be collecting pennies at lunch to help raise money for Friend Inc. The class that gets the most pennies will win money for its class funds, which means that paying a penny now could improve the quality of one’s prom later.

This holiday season, consider donating your time or money to a good cause. If you have any questions about this fundraising project, ask Ms. Nagle or someone involved in FBLA.
