On-site Service Projects

Building on the success of last year’s first on-site service project, FFA members will have the opportunity to serve on the Expo floor again.

Travel Book Pillows
In partnership with Book Pillows of Hope, members will construct more than 1,200 travel book pillows donated to schools, hospitals and first responders. Each pillow takes about one hour to complete. Participants may also design bookmarks to be delivered with the pillows. No preregistration is needed. The service activity is available during the National FFA Expo hours.

Donate a Children’s Book!
Don’t have time to volunteer at convention but would still like to make an impact? National FFA will accept new and gently used children’s books that will be donated with the travel book pillows constructed at national convention. All children’s books are welcome, but preference is for third through fifth grade reading levels. Drop-off locations will be at the on-site service project booth on the Expo floor. Additional locations will be placed around other convention areas.

Evening Service Activity

Service in Action: Pet Homelessness
Learn about how you can help address the needs of pet homelessness while making pet toys to benefit Indianapolis area shelters. Hear from a local animal shelter about how to engage back at home and leave with plans to replicate the project with your own chapter! Please note, participation is limited to the first 200 attendees.

Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 6 p.m. in Indiana Convention Center (ICC) room 138-139.
