JUST THE BEGINNING OF ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
- Identify each day with a special event or project.
- Focus on the state project thrusts or national programs. Use one program as a theme for the week or select a different program to focus on each day.
- Speak out about California FCCLA through school announcements, bulletin boards, and displays.
- If you are focusing on community service for the week, contact an agency/agencies for items that are needed. Collect different donations each day (socks, washcloths, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, baby clothes, cleaning supplies, food, etc.)
- Label each day with the item – Toothbrush Tuesday or Washcloth Wednesday – that your chapter is collecting.
- Contact at-risk shelters and find out their needs. (Example: new or gently used sweatshirts are collected by shelters to help teens and adults who are living on the street.)
- Ask your mayor to declare a proclamation recognizing California FCCLA week in your community.
- Create public service announcements for television and radio stations, develop a video for your local cable television, and write a press release for your local newspaper and school/community website.
