According to a press release:

The Finley chapter of FFA is addressing an important community need with help from a $1,200 National FFA Living to Serve Grant. In the foster care community, it can be difficult to place siblings together with foster families due to limited space in the home. Working with Mo’s Place, a local nonprofit that assists foster children and families, FFA students discovered that bunkbeds could help solve the issue.

“We provide the foster families with the resources and supplies they need to take placement of a sibling set,” explains Mo’s Place co-founder Stephynie Gordon. “Currently, we only have twin beds and that is not often an option for our families who have limited space. Having sets of bunk beds on hand would be amazing and help so many families.”

The Finley FFA group will use the grant funds to purchase all the supplies to construct two bunk-bed units and donate them to Mo's Place. The Finley FFA group will complete the project at River View High School and deliver the final product to Mo's Place in June.
