630 Stuffed Animals Donated to FCCLA’s “Keep it Cuddly” Campaign

The Penn Manor High School FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) Club kicked off February with their “Keep it Cuddly” campaign. Students were asked to bring in new or gently loved stuffed animals to be donated to the local Salvation Army and Penn State Children’s Hospital. After a slow start, the club was excited to receive donations of 600 stuffed animals from the high school students and staff. The 42 members of FCCLA sorted and counted the animals. The 294 new stuffed animals, complete with adoption certificates prepared by the club, will be delivered to Penn State Children’s Hospital. The remaining cuddly creatures will be delivered to the Salvation Army. Club advisers, Mrs. Elizabeth Sheerer and Mrs. Mindy Rottmund, will accompany the FCCLA Club officers when they deliver the stuffed animals.
