FCCLA Leadership Contribution: Donna Donaldson Memorial
NYSAFCSE is a sponsoring organization for the NYS Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. Consider donating in memory of Donna Donaldson, who was an outstanding leader and member of NYSAFCSE and dedicated to youth leadership through FCCLA. This is another vehicle we have for promoting family and consumer science education. Your contribution will be forwarded to the State FCCLA organization to help defray leadership and training costs.
