From STAFF REPORTS

The David Crockett High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) are hosting pet food and blanket drives for the Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter.

Students and staff members donated hundreds of pounds of pet food.

Headed by seniors Mackenzie Robinette and Micayla Lane, the club hosted a food drive at David Crockett High school for two weeks during the month of November.

Students and staff members of DCHS donated over 98 pounds of dry dog food, 61 cans of dog food, 95 pounds of dry cat food, 73 cans of cat food, and 58 pounds of cat litter for the shelter.

The FCCLA members are now hosting a blanket drive to collect new or gently used blankets for the shelter.

Students are partnering with various clubs at David Crockett High School, Daniel Boone FCCLA, and community members to collect as many donations as possible.

During the Crockett/Boone Basketball game on Friday, Jan. 18, blanket donations will be accepted.

If you bring a donation to the game, your ticket will be entered into a drawing for prizes including gift cards and gift baskets from local businesses. 

If you would like more information or would like to donate, please contact the DCHS FCCLA adviser, Jessica Gourley at gourleyj@wcde.org or by calling the school at (423) 753-1171.
