We know you live to serve. We see it in the countless ways you step up in your communities. Normally, the National Days of Service, hosted during the National FFA Convention & Expo, is one such occasion when thousands of FFA members exemplify the FFA motto in the city of Indianapolis and live to serve. But when the national convention and expo went virtual last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, FFA launched the first-ever National Days of Service across the country. Chapters signed up and hosted some amazing service events in October.
Because of your success, we’ve decided to do it again — this time during National FFA Week! What better way to celebrate FFA than by doing a service project during the inaugural FFA Week National Days of Service.
We encourage FFA chapters across the country to register/report a service event to be hosted in February. Take Union FFA in Missouri, for example. This chapter took advantage of the FFA Day of Service Mini-Grant to help support their service efforts. The chapter is preparing dehydrated soups packets to give to the local food pantries, shelters and school community.
How will your chapter serve in February?
Service is more important than ever, and FFA has created a Service and Volunteerism Ideas During COVID-19 document to provide some guidelines on how to serve safely along with some project ideas. There is also an FFA Week National Days of Service Interactive Toolkit to help get started.
