MVCTC Students Organized a Community Book Drive

Clayton, Ohio – The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Early Childhood Juniors collected over 600 books to be delivered to area shelters in the community. This was in conjunction with their FCCLA project Leadership Service in Action. The FCCLA Leadership Service in Action program guides students to develop, plan, carry out, and evaluate projects that improve the quality of life in their communities. Leadership Service in Action helps young people build skills for family, career, and community roles; provides youth-centered learning experiences related to Family and Consumer Sciences education; and encourages young people to develop the positive character traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. The books were donated from preschool parents, teachers at MVCTC and the local community.

The books that were collected during the Book Drive were donated to these area places: Gateway Women and Family Shelter, St. Vincent, Family Abuse Shelter of Miami County, Inc., and Brookhaven Nursing Home.
