FFA Club News 1-10-11
The annual Eaton FFA Food Drive was yet again an enormous success and students were delighted to ensure that every local family got to enjoy their holiday feast. Because of the community’s generous donations, the Eaton FFA was able to collect enough food to fill 75 baskets plum full of canned food and other non-perishable food items.
Clubs such as NHS, FCCLA, and Student Council also helped in making the food drive such a success. Students took a day off from their finals to make sure that all baskets got delivered to a family in need. The Eaton Fire Department escorted students around town to help deliver the baskets. Chapter member, Makaila Carey, mentioned, “I was glad to touch the community and make sure that everyone could enjoy the holidays,” when asked how she felt about the food drive.
The chapter would like to especially thank the community members who donated canned food towards this great cause. We would also like to thank the local business and families that made the food drive possible: Farm Credit Services of the Mountain Plains, Fagerberg Produce, Eaton Fire Department, Eaton School District, Crop Air Inc, Lucerne Inc., Farmer’s Bank, Harper Feedlot, Steve Johnson, B and G Equipment, A-1 Organics, High Plains Rotary Club, Heritage Market, Susan Lacy, The Miller Family, Wal-Mart, and Simplot. It is because of these great contributors, that many families in the community can look forward to a massive holiday feast and forget all their worries.
