Acorn FCCLA - Community Service Project

Acorn FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) began participating in a community service project in September.  They decided in August that they wanted to visit a nursing home each month because so many residents do not have family who can. The students decided that they would go to Peach Tree Assisted Living Facility.  They began working with the Activities Coordinator at Peach Tree to asses what their needs were.  It was decided that the residents would love to have a game night.  Every month they have hosted a board game night.  In December, they played board games and sang Christmas carols.  This past Saturday, they hosted a Senior Prom.  They will continue to go to Peach Tree for game night through May.  This project has been an amazing experience for everyone involved.  The students enjoy it as much as the residents do.  It has truly been an experience that has connected the generations.
