We Help Two & Fundraising
For the second consecutive year FCCLA is partnering with We Help Two to make a positive change by selling funky socks. We Help Two was founded on the belief that fundraising can be done in a way that benefits two causes. Through their unique fundraising method, organizations not only raise funds for their cause but also impact their local community through their local sock donation program at no additional cost!
Socks can be purchased virtually (link coming soon) or on-site at the conference.
Water For Africa
FCCLA wants to make twice the impact by using the funds raised from the first 100 packs of socks sold to provide clean drinking water for communities in Africa who need it most. The Water for Africa program provides a lifeline for African communities to reduce the risk of waterborne illnesses.
Consider these facts:
- Every 20 seconds a child dies from lack of access to clean water in Africa.
- In Africa, women and children in many communities spend up to 60% of each day walking to collect water.
- 40% of sub-Saharan Africa is without access to clean water.
Streets of Hope
After the first 100 packs of socks are sold, FCCLA’s Ultimate Leadership Fund will receive a portion of the sales. In addition, for every two packs of socks sold, one pair of socks will be donated to Streets of Hope in downtown San Diego.
The Streets of Hope is a one hundred-percent volunteer, non-profit organization. What that means is that every dollar donated goes to helping the downtown San Diego’s homeless population. We have a mission and a vision to build a community where lives change.
We’ve been serving the homeless for several years and have seen people get off the streets, get jobs, go to school and more. Yes, lives have been changed. Perhaps some of the greatest changes have been in our hearts as well.
Hundreds of people have served the homeless through the Streets of Hope community and our mission and vision.
