STUDENTS AND TEACHERS RAISE $400 FOR THE MARCH OF DIMES

On November 1st, 2016, Rebecca Mayo, who is the West Metro Development Manager for March of Dimes, came to speak to FBLA. Her speech along with PA announcements and posters made by FBLA members influenced more people to participate in March of Dimes.

In addition, there was a power point slide playing on the cafeteria televisions to raise awareness as FBLA members participated in a student coin collection for March of Dimes on November 14, 2016. The students set up a table and asked for donations during every lunch period to raise funds. Overall, the FBLA Club raised $400.00 for March of Dimes.

To wrap up this fundraiser, FBLA members participated in a Purple Day for World Prematurity Awareness Day on November 17th whereas teachers had a Jeans for Babies Day.

If you want to help give every baby a fighting chance, there’s no better time to make a donation. For more information on how to donate to March of Dimes, visit the website (http://www.march ofdimes.org/)
