GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – Some middle school students in Georgetown are trying to help their community, but first, they need your help.
Agriculture students at Royal Spring Middle School spend their Friday afternoon testing soil and feeding the class chickens.
Taking care of farm animals and learning about the land we live on isn’t all the Future Farmers of America (FFA) program is about.
“It just teaches us confidence and it inspires us,” said FFA Secretary Katelin McKay.
Officers for Royal Spring’s FFA chapter tell ABC 36 the program helps build character. That’s something they’re demonstrating through their next event.
They’re partnering with the ‘Meals of Hope’ organization to box 50 thousand meals.
“It’s kind of like whenever you pack them for Haiti and stuff like that except it’s staying here in Scott County,” said FFA Sentinal Isaiah Perkins.
In order to do that, they need to raise over 12 thousand dollars.
That’s why they need your help.
“You don’t have to donate like a hundred bucks or like a thousand,” said FFA President Raden Lindenmayer. “You could donate a quarter, or a dollar even, like everything helps.”
Donations can be sent to Royal Spring Middle School, attention FFA.
