Board members representing Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County today accepted a donation of $373 from Region 1 of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Region 1 officers chose to support Habitat for Humanity because the organization matches the ideals and values of FCCLA by supporting communities and families in need through home construction. The money gifted to Habitat was raised during FCCLA’s fall regional meeting, where members of Region 1 passed buckets in a “Miracle Minute” race to raise funds by donating change. All members were encouraged to bring spare change to the meeting. Board members representing Habitat for Humanity of Nodaway County are pictured with members of FCCLA's Region 1 officer team.
