March of Dimes Fundraiser

Georgia Virtual School’s chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) will be collecting dimes at the Professional Learning Symposium on Saturday, February 1st to support March of Dimes.

This organization has been supported by FBLA for almost 40 years. March of Dimes supports research and programs to help babies in our local communities and across the country get a healthy start.

When you arrive at the PLS, there will be a large baby bottle for your dimes to be deposited. Other change and dollar bills are also accepted.

Let’s see if we can fill the collection container to the top! Thanks in advance for your support of FBLA’s philanthropy efforts with March of Dimes.
