State Outreach Project

2019-2020 Kickin’ it with Kindness 

The Pennsylvania FCCLA State Outreach Project for the 2019-20 year involves partaking in Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) around your school and community.  
Chapters may participate by completing RAK’s listed below, and following the points listed next to it. After collecting 200 points, you will be invited to an exclusive party at the State Leadership Conference.  For every 10 points after 200 points (210, 220, 230, etc.) your chapter will be entered into a special drawing!   See attached for download.
Remember to send pictures of each Random Act of Kindness completed in jpeg format with your chapter name to Natalie Diven, your Vice President of Programs, at before March 10th.
