Community Service Event for GCHS FFA
December 12, 2011By Aaron McDonald of Garrard County High School FFA
Beginning in 2010, the National FFA Organization made it mandatory for the State and American degrees that all candidates complete some amount of community service. For the state degree, a total of 25 hours must be completed in the course of your high school career. Candidates for the American degree must recieve 50 hours. In an effort to help both our students and our community, the Garrard County chapter of the FFA will be participating in a community service event with the Camp Dick Fire Department on Friday, December 16 at 1:00. We will be assisting them in sorting toys for the Toys-for-Tots program for less-fortunate children. Since this is a half-day of school, we will meet there instead of taking a bus. FFA members that are interested need to contact Mr. McDonald or an officer to notify them of your intent to work! Not only do you earn hours for your degrees, but you also help make our community a better place, especially in this holiday season!
