Franklin County Students Fight Hunger With Bike Race

Posted: Updated:

Franklin County High School students are making a difference by putting down their books to teach preschoolers the value of giving back.

It's part of the FCCLA's national outreach project and it's giving young kids a "License to Feed."

Jessica Leftwich, FCCLA advisor, says the tots and teens are teaming up to raise money for the FCCLA's hunger outreach.

To raise money high school classes sponsor each of the kids on racing on bikes.

The little racers are in the preschool program at Franklin County High School.

"We're doing something good for our community by helping with child hunger, which is what Share Our Strength focuses on," Leftwich said. "Also, the preschoolers really enjoy it. They're getting their exercise in the meantime and it's nice to see the high schoolers and the community pull together to support such a good cause."

The FCCLA holds a fundraiser every year, but each year they try to do something a little different.
