Two students from the St. John FCCLA Chapter are showing they have big “Hearts” when it comes to their FCCLA Star Event.
Mary Gagnon and BreAnna Poitra chose to do their Star Event Project that involved collecting donations for the “Hearts of Hope” Shelter at Belcourt.
They along with help of the St. John Student Council asked for donations of hygiene items, clothing, and entertainment /toys/ coloring books.
They also asked for backpacks to hold these items for various children that the Hearts of Hope Shelter serves.
The girls spoke with 7th and 9th graders about situations some young people and adults end up in in their lives, and sometimes may need to leave their home quickly.
