The Warsaw FFA Chapter has teamed up with the Kosciusko County Combined Community Services to help with their Adopt-a-Family program again this year. We have adopted a family in the community to make their Christmas merry and bright. The Warsaw FFA Chapter and Agriculture Department has started to collect donations for the family. There are two Christmas trees in the Warsaw Community High School Agriculture rooms with ornaments labeled with items for the adopted family. FFA members and students are pitching in to make this family’s Christmas oneto remember and so they can enjoy their time with family.

Warsaw FFA Says Thank You to the Community for a Spectacular 14th Annual Community Appreciation Supper & Member Worker Experience Fundraiser
On Tuesday, November 21st, the Warsaw FFA Chapter hosted their 14th Annual Community Appreciation Supper & Member Workers’ Auction in the WCHS Cafeteria. The evening began with a free chili and hot dog supper. FFA members served supper to show their appreciation for the support that local businesses and community members have provided to the chapter over the years.
FFA members volunteer four hours of community service in return for a monetary donation to our chapter to support activities throughout the year. Some of the activities include state and national conventions, career development events, leadership contests, supplies and materials for those contests and monthly chapter activities. The Warsaw FFA would like to thank all the community members and businesses who supported our Annual Community Appreciation Supper & Member Worker Experience Fundraiser.

Many Warsaw Area Career Center students participated in & contributed to a community service project titled: Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan's Purse. Operation Christmas Child helps to not only provide a shoebox full of goodies for Christmas to children ages 2-14 from over 100 different countries, but also begins a journey of discipleship in places where people may not know Christ.
The WACC collected 55 boxes which means our students provided 55 children with the opportunity to hear the message of the Gospel. We are so blessed with such generous & compassionate students and are thankful for all of those who participated!

Students in Ms. Dinse's Interpersonal Relationships classes participated in the Operation Christmas Child community service project this week. These students collected goodies and money to send several shoe boxes to boys and girls around the world for them to open on Christmas. All of our shoe boxes will have a tracking number linked to them so that our students (and staff) can see where they ended up. Thanks to all of our students for participating in such an awesome project!

Mrs. Heinsman & Mr. Clark challenged their students this week to raise $100 for our current Operation Christmas Child community service project. The reward: getting to throw pie in their teachers faces! These students had no issue donating money to such a great cause and certainly enjoyed the reward. Thank you to our awesome teachers for challenging our students to make a difference in the lives of children across the world this holiday season!
