On October 26 the Black River FFA chapter volunteered
at the district Clothing Swap that was arranged by Black River elementary Title
teacher, Mrs. Sarah Luck. The swap was held during the elementary school
conferences in the BREC cafeteria. The clothing swap was an opportunity for
families to donate and/or exchange gently used clothing. Each family that
brought in clothes received a ticket to swap for additional items. The FFA
members helped sort and set out the clothing as well as helped people shop.
The event was quite a success for its first
year. All left over clothing was donated to a ministry that helps domestic
violence victims and their children. We would like to thank FFA members, Anna
and Lexi Shearer, Eric Cordonnier, Cassidy Mrakuzic, Katlyn Kubitz and Amanda
Mycek and Mr. and Mrs. Shearer for volunteering to help throughout the event.
