or many chapters, community service isn't just part of the FBLA
mission-it's also a core part of their activities throughout the year
as they seek to become community-minded business leaders.
Valley High School FBLA in Louisville, Kentucky, conducted the Towels
for Bow Wows campaign to gather towels and wash cloths for students in
their school's Veterinarian Assistant Program. Volunteers from Toms River
(NJ) High School North staffed the JBJ Soul Kitchen, where customers can
pay a little extra to cover the meal of a guest who has fallen on hard times.
Rector (AR) High School's chapter collected new socks and underwear
for its annual Socktober clothing drive in October. Members of Emerging
Leaders of Southeast Oklahoma FBLA, a Middle School chapter, celebrated
Veterans Day by walking alongside veterans' jeeps in their local Veterans
Day parade. And members at Metro Tech High School in Phoenix, Arizona
surprised staff and students with more than 200 flowers as part of their
Make Someone Smile campaign.
FBLA chapters across the country regularly pitch in to help their communities.
Besides the good feelings that come with giving back to their
neighbors, members can also earn recognition for those efforts. Service
Season, which ends on January 10, offers points in the Champion Chapter
program for High School chapters that engage in community service. Middle
School chapters can plan a community service activity this month for points
in the Merit Award program. And Collegiate members can host or participate
in a community service project for the Outstanding Chapter Award.
Community service projects are also a competitive event in all three
divisions of FBLA. (See the sidebar for more information about some of the
