Warriors support March of Dimes

FCCLA members in the picture from left to right are: Emily Goldstein, Kaylan Durham, Erin Lathrope, Alli Lausch, Mrs. Burgess, Bri Dunn, Ashley Hennings, Kaylee Sturgis, and Ryan Hobbs.

In early March Weddington’s FCCLA Club facilitated the collection of donations for March of Dimes during third block classes. In these two weeks, we raised almost $2,400, well over our goal of $2,015. 

This amount also places Weddington as the North Carolina March of Dimes top raising Youth Club. Our accomplishment was recognized in both The Charlotte Observer and Union Weekly newspapers.

March of Dimes is an organization that provides information about premature births and funds research to find a way for every baby to be born healthy. FCCLA is proud to support this organization.

Thank you to all who donated to this great cause - especially our top raising classes:

1st - Mr. Hurni’s class, raising $544
2nd - Mrs. McCloskey’s class, raising $264
3rd - Mr. Conroy’s class, raising $223
