FBLA & The Great Toy Drive

Written by: Dawn Le Dates To Remember: During the season of giving, toys for the Great Toy Drive piled up for thousands of children in need. This year marked the 26th annual Great Toy Drive for KGW Northwest News Channel 8. The drive took place from November 24 through December 18. “It felt good to give a toy for the Great Toy Drive,” FBLA member Sara Lee responded. “It’s better to give than to receive.” To celebrate students’ accomplishments in motivating others to donate toys, our chapter hosted a holiday party during lunch. At the awards session our chapter gave recognition to the toys that stood out the most.

FBLA MEMBERS HELP THE LESS FORTUNATE Written by: Dawn Le Many families in Oregon alone are homeless and struggle everyday to have food on their table. The Oregon Food Bank is a statewide network that serves all of Oregon and Clark County in Washington. They have distributed 752,044 emergency food boxes within Oregon and Clark County in 2007. The holiday season has arrived, and business students worked with the Oregon Food Bank Organization to encourage their fellow classmates to give during this season. A competition was held between classes to push students to donate canned foods. The class with the most cans wins the choice of a pizza, Don Pedro’s, or Taco Bell party. As a result, the Business Leadership (FBLA class) won the class competition. They alone brought in 27,000 pounds for the Canned Food Drive. Centennial’s FBLA chapter has worked with the Canned Food Drive for many years. This year, however, Centennial High School has reached an incredibly high standard. Our school has been announced by the Oregon Food bank as the third largest contributor.
