"From Our Homes to Yours"
The PA FCCLA State Emphasis Project 2016-17 involves giving a “piece of your home” to those in need. Chapters may participate by doing tasks on this list. Please note: Not all tasks have to be under the same category nor do they all have to be sent to the same charity.
Once you have completed the task, take a picture of the collection with your chapter members. Send the picture, in jpeg format, attached to an email that gives a description, your name and chapter name by February 15 to Taylor Winslow, Vice President of Programs, at email@example.com
Your chapter members will earn community service items for their resumes. And if your chapter attends State Leadership Conference and has completed three tasks, you will be invited to a special event during State Leadership Conference.
Your Action Plan:
1. Highlight the three things on the list that your chapter can do. (The list of tasks is also attached below.)
2. Select a group of three members to provide the leadership on the task.
3. Set dates for each donation of a “Piece of your Home” and start working.
4. Report your task to Taylor Winslow as described above.
