The Andalusia High School Chapter of Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently held their annual Iron Bowl Canned Food Drive. During the week of November 7-11, the students were to bring in non-perishable food items to donate to those less fortunate this holiday season. When the students brought them to class, they had a choice of putting them in an Alabama or Auburn box.
Competition was high and the race was tight by the close of the competition. A biscuit breakfast was the reward for the 1st block with the most ounces of food. In the end, Mrs. Brannon’s 1st block was the winner with a total of 5,321.4 ounces. Alabama boxes regained their title from last year, after losing to Auburn, with 10, 683.76 ounces. Altogether, the students at Andalusia High School raised 15, 391.27ounces of food! All items were donated to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Red Beans and Rice drive. Some of the AHS FCCLA members also volunteered their time on Sat., Nov. 19, at the monthly Red Beans and Rice Drive and Breakfast. The FCCLA members helped stock shelves, hand out canned goods and red beans and rice, and help serve breakfast to those in need.
