Testimonials from some of our supporters…

“Supporting FCCLA is one way I can give back to an organization that gives so much to members and advisers. FCCLA and Family & Consumer Sciences not only teaches life skills, but also provides opportunities outside of the classroom that many students may not have the opportunity to participate in.” Kelly T. – Churchville, VA

“I donate to Virginia FCCLA because this organization has really helped to make me the person that I am today. It provided me with opportunities to grow as a leader, gain skills for my career, and travel across the U.S. It also gave my own children the same opportunities. I watched them grow into such wonderful adults and use the skills learned to be productive people in society.” Beverly M. – Gate City, VA

“No real testimony here but I like to be able to support friends and customers and their kids in their endeavors when I can. As you can imagine I get several hundred solicitations over the course of a year. When your state officer was willing to put on a coat and tie, come to my office and give me an organized presentation of what he and his organization do, that goes a long way particularly when most of the solicitations I get come from parents who are doing the work for the kids. When the student is involved to this degree and knowledgeable about his organization as your officer was, it made giving a donation very easy.” John D. – Glen Allen, VA
