Items in the 5 gallon bucket are desperately needed by millions of people in Honduras.  The FFA Chapter and HOSA members are partnering to raise support for these people and will be collecting items for buckets from February 16-March 5.  You can be drop THE items you purchase/donate in the Ag Room or Ms. Woodruff’s room.  (combs or brushes, reusable set of 4 plastic dishware, 2 lg bath towels, 2 bed sheets-only bed sets or flat sheets size double/full or queen, 1-10”or 12” frying pan and spatula, and 5 gal. buckets)
