Morton Ranch FCCLA- Community Projects
December was busy for Morton Ranch FCCLA in Katy, TX.
At the monthly, general meeting members made a swirl ornament in the school colors of purple and white. The top of the ornament was opened and a few drops of purple and white acrylic paint were added and the ornament was swirled around to coat the inside of the ornament. A bow was to the cap words to the outside in permanent ink. Some students wrote holiday greetings, some said MRHS FCCLA, some said Mavericks with the school logo drawn on the ornament. It was a successful, enjoyable meeting.
Members participated in the local Santa Cop program with the Katy ISD police department. Morton Ranch HS FCCLA adopted two children from the many in the area that participate in the program. Everyone donated new clothes, toys and necessities that were on the wish list of the child. FCCLA members wrapped gifts and stuffed a giant Santa bag to be delivered back to the police station. The police department hosted a gathering for the children to receive the gifts. MRHS was honored to get to help local children.
FCCLA also filled Christmas baskets with canned and non perishable foods for local needy families in the community.
Besides collecting toys for the Santa Cop program with the Katy Police Department and filling up Christmas Baskets with food for local families in the Morton Ranch High School Community student families FCCLA members also collected canned and frozen foods for the Katy Christian Ministries Food Pantry. The food pantry welcomes in and feeds many local needy families as well as homeless people in the area that need a hot meal.
