Livingston High School's Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club participates in community service activities throughout the school year. While practicing responsible citizenship, members also form networks with business and community leaders, and gain experience with managing projects beyond the classroom.
In January, FBLA joined in the Lancer week of service and collected diapers to support the local March of Dimes.
In February, the group partook in New Jersey FBLA's initiative, "Operation Uplift." Recognizing the economic crisis and resulting impoverishment and homelessness that the COVID-19 pandemic has created, members assembled snack bags for those staying at a shelter to give comfort. In total, members assembled more than 50 snack bags and dropped them off at LHS (see photo above). These snack bags were donated to Homeless Solutions, a local shelter in Morristown, New Jersey. Photos are are posted on the club's Instagram page @lhsfblapbl.
Currently, FBLA is leading a fundraising initiative to support Sunrise Association, an organization the supports children and families dealing with pediatric cancer. The association provides programs for children and its capstone program consists of several day camps across the country. The LHS group has set a lofty goal of raising $2,500 to purchase supplies to make activity bags for children while they are receiving treatment at hospitals. The community is invited to help them reach their goal. Click HERE donate.
