Texas FFA LDE Service Project Impacts City of Hunstville    
Saturday, December 15, 2018 | Author: Texas FFA News

Texas FFA chapters collected more than $7,200 worth of coats intended for children in the Huntsville community, the host city of the 2018 State Leadership Development Events (LDEs).

“The greatest way we can impact the world is by providing for the future,” said Ashlie Thompson, Texas FFA Vice President. “Our team decided we would conduct a multi-tier project; the coat drive in Huntsville was the first portion of the plan.”

The 2018-2019 Texas FFA Officers set a goal to coordinate a three-tier community service project, titled “Believe in the Future,” that will take place at three events throughout the year: the State LDE Contest, State Leadership Conference, and State Convention.

At the state contest, members were asked to bring the donations to the contest. Coats of all sizes and variety were contributed. 

“Collectively, we donated 360 coats to give to children in need,” said Thompson.

All the donations were delivered to the Good Shepherd Mission in Huntsville, Texas.

“Community service provides a great learning experience for students where they are able to learn about humility, selflessness and caring for those around them,” said Thompson. “I believe it is crucial that members participate in community service because it is our duty as citizens to better the world around us.”
