We are collecting new and slightly worn denim to provide a contribution to the safe center. So hunt through your closet the next couple days for those jeans you don’t wear and donate them to someone who can.
Please bring your items to your classroom to be picked up. High school can bring theirs to the business classroom. Thank you for your contribution to our quick mission!
The combined FBLA & FFA Food Drive was an amazing success. We collected our highest numbers of food items to donate to the local food pantry ever! This year our goal was 1400 items and Wilcox-Hildreth met and surpassed that goal. Thank you to everyone who donated items. This was a huge success!!
Wilcox-Hildreth hosted Carter Hulsey and the band Me Like Bees on August 30th. This was a wonderful concert followed by some life knowledge on personal finance. The group shared with students how financial literacy and being purposeful enable them to make dreams reality. They also talked about the importance of saving, how compound interest works, why to stay away from payday lenders, and how making wise financial decisions can help a person fulfill one’s dreams.
A huge thank you to the Nebraska Council for Economics Education for partnering and with us to make this concert a reality. What an amazing opportunity and great concert.
