The Preble Shawnee FFA chapter recently held a schoolwide fundraiser for hurricane Harvey and Irma victims, the chapter partnered with (CWS) Church World Services. CWS is an organization that collects emergency cleanup buckets that “provide assistance to families and communities affected by flooding, tornadoes and other disasters.” Each bucket has a value of $75, they have 15 total items to complete a single bucket.
A few items are laundry detergent, sponges and clothesline. The chapter usually would make a charitable contribution to this organization. However, in light of the recent natural disasters to the United States our chapter felt the need to have greater involvement. We had a goal of 10 complete buckets. We ended up with a total of 13 buckets. Our chapter advisor, Sarah Flinn, will be delivering the buckets to a drop of center to where they will then be taken to hurricane victims in need.
We would like to thank the Preble Shawnee staff, students, and community members for their help to fill the buckets!
