The FFA is holding the 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Baskets Drive. Each 1st period class has been given the goal of collecting the non-perishable items that will make up a Thanksgiving meal. OUr goal is for all 32 1st period classes to complete a basket. That would provide a meal for 32 families in the district. Last year we collected 64 and was able to give 32 families a meal at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. The class that collects the most complete baskets wins a donut party. Every person that donates an item gets put into a drawing for a $50 pre-paid Visa. The more you donate, the more times your name is entered, which means the more chances to win.
