Collecting donations for the people in need is something that schools help incorporate from time to time, whether it is donating items or money for a good cause or performing a task that helps the needy. March 6 through March 10, FCCLA collected donations for “His Helping Hand,” a non-profit organization in Wichita. Students and staff could donate clothing or other household items.

“We chose to help this organization because we thought people would be more open to helping out,” senior Abby Linn said. “It also helped people give and not expect awards for it.”

FCCLA had a donation box located outside the office where people could donate if they wanted to. Overall, Linn said this event was a good way to help out the less fortunate.

“I like the idea of helping out organizations because I think more people need to donate to the less fortunate and not expect anything in return,” Linn said.
