Wheatmore Future Farmers of America (FFA) member Kristine Cheek led a school-wide project to bring Easter joy to 50 children in the local community. Kristine organized a drive to collect the perfect items for the baskets and then worked alongside several other FFA members to assemble the beautiful baskets which were donated to Community Outreach of Archdale-Trinity (COAT) and Thomasville’s Baptist Children’s Home. What an awesome service project and great way to incorporate multiple student organizations across one campus!

The following campus organizations supported the project with donations and workers:

Future Farmers of America (FFA)
Beta Club and National Honors Society (NHS)

DECA (Marketing Student Organization) and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA)

Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
