In November, the Lord Botetourt FFA started a canned food drive to help local families. On Dec. 13-14, FFA members travelled to Kroger to buy nonperishable foods with part of their annual Fruit Sale profits as well as contributions from any members wanting to donate.
The FFA had five groups of members competing to see who could buy the most canned food with a limited amount of money. All groups were very successful, buying shopping carts full of food. A truckload of food donations went to the Glade Creek Lutheran food pantry to support the needs of families and to help prepare holiday meals.
The Lord Botetourt FFA would like to thank everyone who has supported our community service projects including our canned food drive, “Toys for Bot-E-Tots,” and Toys for Seniors. Have a Merry Christmas!
