FCCLA - Helping those in Crises
(3/14/14): Prairie Central High School FCCLA has
printed a second edition of its 2012 cookbook. This time
around, it will help women and children in a crises shelter.
One of our former FCCLA members works at this shelter and is working
with current FCCLA members to help women get back on their feet and
feed their families.
Proceeds made from the cookbook will be going towards cooking equipment (measuring cups, mixing bowls, etc.) for women who are leaving the shelter to begin their new life. Cookbooks can be purchased at the customer service desk at Dave's Supermarket for $10 dollars each or by contacting FCCLA Adviser, Mrs. Shier, at firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
