West Ashley HS FCCLA Students Serving the Community

Students in West Ashley High School’s chapter of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently helped pack boxes for the local Basket Brigade at the North Charleston Convention Center.

WAHS FCCLA’s 2015/2016 Chapter Service Projects are focused on helping the less fortunate.  Later this year, FCCLA students will partner with local businesses and community outreach groups to ensure homeless citizens have nutritious food. They will also help host birthday celebrations for children living in local shelters.
