Templeton, California-March 30, 2012. Templeton FFA recently embarked upon its first ever soldier supply drive. The drive titled “Hero Day” was a part of the Herobox.org program. The chapter members were responsible for collecting supplies for the 980th Engineering Battalion stationed in Afghanistan.
Templeton FFA members brought in enough supplies to fill up 24 boxes with over 175 pounds of requested supplies. Some students even chose to leave personal messages for our troops overseas. This first time community service project gained great support with in the chapter. If the need is present in future years, Templeton FFA will continue to support the men and women in our armed services.
FFA makes a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agriculture education.
