The Mugging For Dues project is an FFA fundraiser to assist FFA members in paying their annual dues and additional FFA costs, such as jackets and registration fees. FFA officers distributed a survey to current agriculture students asking them if they would like to be an FFA member and if they needed assistance in paying their FFA dues.
“The purpose of this project is to ensure that any student who wants to be an FFA member has equal access to everything the organization has to offer them,” said FFA advisor, Randi Krieg.
In the project, community members purchase a 20-oz Goldendale FFA engraved tumbler for $25, and all collected funds will be distributed based on members’ needs. Based on the student surveys, the chapter’s goal is to sell at least 30 tumblers. Community members can set-up a purchase time with any of the Goldendale agriculture teachers by phone, email, or Goldendale FFA Facebook Messenger. The program will run until the end of October, when the FFA fall dues are submitted to Nationals.
