The Nashville FFA Chapter hosted a Donate for Donuts Campaign on Dec. 2. The campaign provides the people at the Women’s Center in Carbondale with the necessities for everyday living. All of the items that were donated go to men, women, and children who are fleeing domestic abuse in the southern Illinois area. During their second hour class, students from Nashville Community High School were encouraged to bring items such as lightly used clothing, toiletries, toys, and other necessary items for everyday use. In total, 1,926 items were collected. In fifth place with 272 items and an average of 12.95 was Mr. Taylor’s class. In fourth place was 237 items and an average of 13.16 was Mr. Weathers’ class. In third place with 152 items and an average of 13.81 was Mrs. Heggemeier’s class. In second place with 217 items and an average of 21.7 was Mrs. Bond-Ledford’s class. And the winning class that will receive donuts for collecting 240 items with an average of 26.66 items was Mr. Malawy’s class.
