Last Saturday, March 18, members of FCA and the community gathered to pack seeds for areas in need of fresh food. The packing took place in the middle school cafeteria and ran from 8am-12pm.

The overall goal was to pack and prepare 40,000 envelopes of onion and okra seeds.

FCA advisor, Mr. Nick Lovrich, is very proud of the turnout and everyone who was willing to help.

“It means a lot…we have a lot of very good people in our community and especially in our school,” Mr. Lovrich said, “People always say they’re worried about the next generation, but we have such great leaders in our school.”

FCA partnered with UNTO, a humanitarian organization, to participate in this event. Steve Baker, PACKHOPE Experience Coordinator for UNTO, explained that they do a lot of other projects, such as, drilling water wells, installing water filtration systems, and providing hygiene projects.

UNTO representative, Dave Park, loves the organization and is grateful to be a part of it. 

“…it provides a great service to needy people around the world. I mean it’s just a wonderful organization,” Dave commented.

Over one hundred people, ranging from B-A students to out-of-state  individuals, took part in the successful event.
