FBLA Chapter Gathers School Supplies

Posted: Updated:

The Future Business Leaders of America at Century High School are doing their part to help children in need.

The Dreamer Center, a global volunteer-driven organization that helps families, needs school supplies. And when the call was put out for help, Century's FBLA chapter answered.

For one student, its a way to put her own non-profit to work. FBLA chapter president Alyana Simpron is the founder of the Rising Children Foundation.

"It was a great way to incorporate both my non-profit and FBLA, and we need a service project anyway. Well we wanted to done one so this one was perfect to do and it'll be nice to start out the school year doing something nice for other people," says Simpron.

School supplies were collected from the week long drive. The club hopes to continue this drive at nearby elementary schools to get more supplies before the trip.
