County fairs aren’t the only chance for FFA students to show their fundraising skills. There are many different ways FFA students have found to help raise funds during the school year and the Calhoun FFA chapter is having their first fundraiser this year to help raise money for their activities.
“The Calhoun FFA chapter is selling raffle tickets for $5 each. The winners of the raffle will win a 1/2 processed hog,” Heidi Loyd-Doyle, agriculture teacher of Calhoun High School, said.
“Meat prices in the grocery stores have been getting higher in pricing and we thought it would be a wonderful way for someone to fill their freezer with meat by giving it away.”
Loyd-Doyle said the money the chapter raises can be used by FFA students towards their trips to national and state conventions.
“The hog and processing has generously been donated by supporters of our chapter. Tickets may be purchased from any FFA member or by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page,” Loyd-Doyle said.
“The Calhoun FFA chapter tries very hard to make a positive difference in the lives of its members by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through the agricultural program. The chapter officers have worked very hard on planning our year and look forward to doing activities within the community and promoting agriculture.”
