FCCLA Members Serve Their Local and Global Community
Over the fall and winter months, FCCLA members [in the Canyon View Junior High FCCLA chapter in Alpine School District]—led by Amelia Jessen and Emily Barker—have been retrofitting donated bee suits for the ASEDA Raw Honey Foundation, which will then distribute the suits to youth beekeeping programs in Utah as well as Ghana, Africa.
Members had a great time removing buttons, pinning and sewing in Velcro (generously donated by Velcro USA) and preparing the suits to ship out with the ASEDA Foundation.
Over 20 FCCLA members have been involved with the project. FCCLA is the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America—the only student led organization with the family as its focus.
