Fall has just begun and everyone is feeling festive. Opportunities to give are coming up. On Saturday, September 23, Shiloh FBLA went to Tabernacle International Church for a community service event from 9am to 1pm. Members contacted people in the community and worked on marketing flyers to inform them about the upcoming Harvest Time event. Members also boxed perishable foods for families who will be in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. FBLA students love to give back to the community and always appreciate opportunities to help others.
Members of the Douglas County High School Future Business Leaders of America volunteered to serve as staff for the Gordon Foods Annual Event. Members attended a training session at the GFS distribution center a few days before the event. The annual meeting theme was Driven. It was held on December 10, 2016 at the Marriott Marque in Atlanta, Georgia. FBLA members worked the registration table, the Gordon Gear Store, the Book Table, and the Childcare area. By providing this service, FBLA members allowed Gordon Food Service employees to relax and enjoy the night of celebrating the 2016 accomplishments.

Happy (early) Halloween! Think you are too old to collect candy during Halloween, but still want to dress up? Your FBLA chapter may have a solution – Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF started 66 years ago as a way to help kids still affected by WWII, and now the money you collect will to donated to help kids because of poverty, war or natural disasters make it difficult to get basic necessities.
All you have to do is to start an event with UNICEF is to join or make an event here and order free materials and collection boxes here. This is a simple event that is easy to join and start while going to a good cause. Have fun dressing up and Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF!
The service activity of this month is to visit and volunteer at a local adult day care or senior citizens homes. This is an easy and simple service activity; all you will need to do is arrange a date to visit with the management and show up! You can help out with whatever activities they have for that day, whether it is warm-ups, bingo, lunch, singing, or just getting to know them. Volunteering at a local adult day care or senior homes is a fun and low-stress way to give back to your community. Senior citizens love talking to high schoolers, and who knows, maybe you will meet interesting people and hear fascinating stories!
