Gresham, OR- Members of the Centennial Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) have spent the last month actively developing and planning their latest community service project. This year's chapter members unanimously chose to continue to support the Food for Families.
Food for Families is the nonprofit that the students started in 2014 in their immediate community. Out of a retired school bus, Food for Families provides a mobile food pantry/mobile market to the members of the Centennial community. The program focuses on 'community helping community' while empowering individuals to become food secure through education and resources. By completing a project that supports healthy living, community members will be able to focus on getting back on their feet, knowing that they and their family will still have the food they need. At the same time, this project strengthens the community as those in need feel the support of the community they live in.
In an effort to raise money and awareness for this nonprofit, the members of Centennial FBLA will be hosting a benefit carnival "Eagle Scream Fest," on Friday, October 28, 2016. The night's activities include a variety of old-fashioned carnival games, family activities, a benefit raffle, and many more exciting highlights that will bring great memories and a competition for individuals of all ages. The event will begin at 5:30pm and conclude at 7:30pm. The festivities will be held in the Commons of Centennial High School which is located on 3505 SE 182nd Avenue, Gresham, OR 97030. Carnival game tickets will be sold 3 for $1 or 20 for $5, while raffle tickets will be sold for $1 each or 6 for $5. Participants are asked to bring their own bags for goodies. Costumes are welcome and organizers want to see the faces of the all the participants (so no masks please).
