FCCLA: Focus on Children
Transcript of FCCLA: Focus on Children
15.5 Million children live in poverty in the U.S.
Nearly 20 million children now receive free or reduced-price lunches in the nation's schools, but that does not include dinner or food for the weekend. Follow Up By Amanda Stilwell and
Trinity High School FCCLA
District 5 The PLAN Act On February 12, 2013 during the Varsity Basketball games, project "Together We Can" was a go.
Collected over 50 canned food items to donate.
With help from FCCLA members, our wonderful advisor, and the community, we were able to beat our goal and put a dent in hunger statistics, for one week at least.
Later that week, we went to C.O.A.T and actually packed bags of food that would be sent home in backpacks with children for the weekend. In forming our plan we needed to:
1) Identify the issue used for our project. 2) Find a great place to hold a food drive, when to do it and how to go about doing it. 5) Set a GOAL! 4) Acknowledge the skills and abilities we
needed to see the project through. Possible Barriers of Our Project 3) Find people and resources needed to help with the food drive. After brainstorming current issues, hunger was the one that stuck out most.
Hunger is an issue that we are very passionate about and want to do what we can to help resolve it. We decided to hold the food drive in our school's gym on Senior Night during the Varsity basketball games.
We knew we needed to get permission from our principal, prizes to give away, boxes for the food and advertisement! We immediately held an FCCLA club meeting and had members and our advisor help with the food drive.
Our principal supplied us with the prizes, tickets, support and advertisement we needed! We had to have: Creativity, responsibility, productivity, consistency, great communication and a great attitude.
As well as child nutrition and development information needed for this project. Our goal was to reach as many children and families as possible by collecting at least 50 canned food items. We wanted to go to C.O.A.T (Community Outreach of Archdale Trinity) and pack backpacks full of food to give to children to eat for the weekend. In doing so, we planned to be as organized as possible and our main goal was to just help in anyway possible. Not having people to donate food.
Not having any help.
Not having the resources needed to see the project through.
Senior Night getting canceled. Our project was a success, but we could improve it.
Longer to advertise and prepare is a must for any other upcoming projects.
Even better organization.
Collect more specific food items.
The significance of our project was ultimately, it helped feed hungry children and families. That is more than winning any prize, knowing that at least one child isn't starving during the weekend. Citations USA Today.
