The Manvel FFA have another project going on at this time through September 4, 2020.
Fill the Trailer Hurricane Relief Drive is underway. The drive started August 28 and students, faculty and the community are dropping off items at the agricultural department in a huge trailer.
The FFA students want to help neighbors in the east get through the challenging times following a hurricane by filling their FFA trailer with donations. These items include water, Gatorade, dog and cat food, diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste, deodorant, paper towels, toilet paper, soap and shampoo, trash bags, work gloves, and canned non-perishable food items.
The ag department is located on the far left of the Manvel High School Parking lot in front of the welding shop or band hall entrance. The address is 19601 Highway 6 in Manvel.
FFA is a dynamic student-led leadership development organization for students of agricultural education. The FFA changes lives and prepares students for premier leadership, personal growth and career success.
