The student leadership group delivered 30 embroidered fleece pillows made by members, helped sort and organize the clothing store and cleaned and organized the toy area for children.

Following the "work" time, the students and advisors were able to join the residents for a warm meal provided by Hope Lutheran Church of Fargo and given an opportunity to visit with residents and employees of the facility.

"We should come here more often, they really need our help," commented FCCLA member Andrea Knudsvig.

The premise of this project was to have high school mentors spend quality time in a service project with the junior high mentors.

FCCLA is a leadership and service organization open to all students in grades 7-12.
