Jefferson FCCLA asking community for support PDF Print E-mail
Monday, February 11, 2013 10:01 AM


DELPHOS — Jefferson’s Future Career and Community Leaders of America chapter is preparing to “Ignite Leadership” during National FCCLA Week, Feb. 11-15. Several activities are planned for the students during the week.

All week long, there will be a competition amongst the grade levels to collect pop can tabs and wish-list items for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (Columbus) and NW Ohio (Toledo). Ronald McDonald Houses provide a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

Ronald McDonald House Charities believes that when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.


On Thursday, the students will receive secret Valentine suckers with the proceeds will go to the charity.


Friday will conclude the competitions and the week with Pajama Day. For a donation of 50 cents, students can wear their pajamas to school.

The community is also encouraged to show their support on Feb. 16 by bringing donations to the McDonald’s Restaurant on Elida Avenue in Delphos. FCCLA members will be present from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect can tabs, monetary donations and any wish-list items to donate to the houses.
