FCCLA pets3With the chilly weather, the Jackson County Dog Pound put the warm beds right to work for their four legged clients. If you are considering donating sweaters for the project, not to worry.  Additional sweaters received will be remade into beds and delivered. Contact Judy Hamilton if you have questions or would like directions to make your own pet bed.

Held with the American Red Cross, the FCCLA chapter sponsors two blood drives a year.  This school year, students, staff and community members have provided lifesaving blood products for 213 patients. Blood services are often needed by accident victims, cancer patients and those in need of surgery.  FCCLA member Corey Jones actively sought donors and volunteered at the drive. Corey said, “It made me feel really good to know we were helping people and saving lives.” Corey and Mrs. Judy Hamilton, FCCLA Advisor, invite the community to any upcoming American Red Cross blood drive.
