The organization helps feed over 100,000 people at the food bank during the holiday season. With all the donations from BABH, the West Alabama Food Bank is sustained for four to five months (Charland). Students and faculty have the ability to help out the organization by donating cans for the drive. Red bins will be set out all over campus, in the Ferg, and in the lecture halls, to drop off canned goods. “Anything you can put in your pantry,” Charland said cheerfully when I asked what type of donations BABH was looking for.
Every year our officer team helps the YMBL, Young Men’s Business League, of Southeast Texas to put on a Special Needs Rodeo. Many school’s life skills programs from all over the area come to enjoy a day where they can be themselves and have fun. There is nothing more rewarding to me than to see these kids happy and to give them the chance to feel included. I have been incredibly blessed with all the opportunities the FFA has given me. The FFA takes students today and transforms them into leaders for tomorrow.

The goal was to raise $200,000 by the end of Carnival season. Melvin Amore, Zulu Social Aid, and Pleasure Club assistant financial secretary, donated time and money to schools and charities throughout its 99-year history (Maloney 1). Orpheus organization focuses on improving education and Zulu debutantes get college scholarships while members volunteer and serve as role models within the community. “Muses Community Involvement Committee, said her krewe donates a free ride to an honorary Muse and $5,000 to her charity of choice each year” (Maloney 1). Krewes are doing good in the community and actually care about Mardi Gras and the happiness it brings to everyone.
Boxes upon boxes of food are everywhere. It is time to carry out operation Sack Pack Program at West Sioux High School. Four adults and ten students prepare to form an assembly line to make 350 sack packs for students in need, from kindergarten to twelfth grade. These students in need could go hungry over the weekend if it was not for these sack packs, which provide nutritious, healthy food. I had the privilege of speaking to one of the sack pack program directors.
The the fair takes place in the heart of East Texas in Tyler, so it’s just a 45 minute drive from Canton. You can also really immerse yourself in fall activities at the Yesterland Fall Festival. Yesterland Farms takes you back to an old-fashioned style farm, and during the fall festival there a lot of activities for the whole family like perusing a
In 1775, the Continental Congress had a problem: it had controlled the sixteen-thousand-man army outside of Boston, but had no money to pay them and no power to raise taxes this lead to “I.O.U.’s” meaning they will pay the men later, but this put them in deeper finical distress. In a three year period beef went for $0.04 a pound to $1.69 a pound and paper money lost all value. Joseph Homer represented the town General Court for most of the war years, and he consistently voted for paper money because gold and silver was scarce in rural communities. Even Pasteur’s salaries decreased tremendously. Since a large number of men were getting drafted for the war, it left women at home having to run the farms.
The penny cost 2x as much as it really is. 700 million dollars isn 't worth the one cent piece, we could be using this money on charity or something else important. Though the penny has been part of the U.S for more than a hundred years, it should not be minted anymore because of the high production cost and other countries such as canada don 't even bother using them at all. People argue that the penny should stay because of its long time and history with the US, but what they don 't know is that the penny cost more than 2.4 cents per penny. “The US Mints budget in 2010 was 27.4 million dollars in penny production”(source 1).
The construction began in 1848, but halted in 1854 due to lack of funding. Work resumed in 1879, but twenty-five years worth of weathering took its toll on the half completed monument making the color off from what the rest of it was built from. The economy of Washington, D.C. thrives on tourism and international affairs. The President, cabinet, and congress only make up a small portion of the jobs in
Growing up in a small town, I have gone to the Mississippi Valley Fair all my life. Nonetheless, the attractions compared to the Iowa State Fair are very poorly put together. The rides at the Iowa State fair are not only larger in size, but also generate a much smoother ride for the riders. There is even one day of the week during the fair when one can buy a wristband and ride all the rides you want. One of my favorite rides that my friend and I went on was probably the fireball.
Both my siblings had been involved in the club, so I started right out freshman year by attending the after church meetings. I have been involved in various fundraisers the group has done for their annual mission trip. I have also participated in the annual coat drive each fall, and the Super Bowl Sunday fundraiser that benefits the local food kitchen. Since I first joined, SMYLE has provided me with many opportunities to combine my faith and service to help contribute to the community. Service and leadership have been important assets that I have worked at achieving all throughout and before high school.
We do this at our annual chapter banquet where awards are given, and scholarships are given. Being such an active member, and juggling school along with a part time job at Pizza Hut, I was fortunate enough to get two scholarships from the FFA Alumni Association. These accomplishments and the money awarded are helping me pay for the books I’m using in college today. My hard work as an FFA member and officer had definitely paid
Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of. I am able to take on many leadership roles and do them all with a smile! University of Dayton students seem to have a great school spirit, and I would like to add my ideas to build it even
I competed in the HOSA district regional competition during my junior year and placed in the top five for my health career display. Subsequently, I went on to compete at the HOSA state competition, which showed me many of the possibilities available for a career in the field of healthcare. I have been a HOSA officer during both my junior and senior year. At HOSA annual leadership conferences, I have packed thousands of meals for Stop Hunger Now. These meals are sent to schools in impoverished countries, such as Haiti, thereby promoting education while reducing world hunger.
