The Fleetwood chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America recently launched a project with Ronald McDonald House of Charities.

Every year, the club forms a project that benefits the community. Last year’s FBLA’s project was titled “Superheroes for Autism.” This year, they’re working with Ronald McDonald House of Charities.

For this project, students will be donating toys and books to those in need. Taking on this project reflects the FBLA’s commitment to bringing students together to make a difference as young leaders come together in a community.

Participation in this project contributes to all the great work Ronald McDonald House of Charities has accomplished. In an effort to accomplish their goals, Fleetwood students will raise funds through a soda tab drive, bracelets from a local gymnastics studio, and the donation of toys. Students also aim to motivate others to participate through advertising and the school board. This will also include a friendly competition during homecoming week.

All of the members have donated to charity previously and are thrilled to continue.

“We have already donated inspirational bracelets and plan to donate toys with our toy drive, which is happening right now,” Jossalyn Galleassi said.

Students are already spreading flyers and posts on the FBLA instagram page as well as telling peers and making announcements in the afternoon.

Ronald McDonald House of Charities differs from last year’s project, but both projects went to the state competition and helped the community as well. Organizers enjoyed working with Ronald Mcdonald House of Charities including; sophomore Casey Batz was the leader of this project.

“I would love to see us continue working with RMHC even after the project is technically complete,” Batz said. 

Seeing these projects unfold with considerate people of the community has been a positive experience for many participants. FBLA aspires to help the community and have a positive impact on the district.
