Weston-McEwen High School FFA students found a way to make a difference in their community this holiday season. The group organized a food drive and collected more than 1,000 pounds of food.
According to Ashley Florence, voc-ag teacher and FFA advisor, a variety of food including hams, apples and dried goods have been donated. All the food will be given to families in need in the community. FFA teamed up with Wheatland Insurance, and their office staff have also collected food.
In addition, FFA students are making brownies and soup in jars that will be delivered with the Christmas meals next week.
“We have had amazing success with this project this year. I am proud of our students who have embraced the holiday spirit and found a wonderful way to give back to our community,” said Florence.
