The Lynchburg-Clay FFA Chapter is seeking donations to assist one of their own. On April 5th, during a storm, an FFA member and their family lost their home and nearly all of their belongings. John and Amanda Widmeyer’s home outside of Buford was completely destroyed. They have five children residing in their home with them. They did not have insurance on the house and will need assistance to replace their home.
Currently, our FFA is hosting a household collection drive. The family is in need of the following items: personal care items, dishes, pot, pans, towels, wash cloths, dish towels, kitchen table and chairs, end tables, dressers, TV, couch, queen or full size mattress and box springs, bed frames. Clothing items that are needed include: Size 10 & 12 husky boy’s pants, size 8/10 & 12/14 boy’s shirts, Size 3 & 5 Junior jeans, ladies small & medium shirts, size 9 ladies pants, men’s 36x34 & 48 jeans, and men’s medium & 4X shirts. Socks are needed in large boys, medium/large women’s, and men’s large socks.
