Local Youth Help Those in Need

The Intervention Crisis and Advocacy Network, a Chickasha non-profit that supports victims of domestic violence, was recently assisted by local Future Farmers of America students.

Raygan Krey of Sterling is the 2022-2023 Oklahoma Red Angus Queen for North American Junior Red Angus Event and enlisted the help of local FFA members to join her in helping ICAN.

Rush Springs FFA members included Tyler Stewart, Dalton Melton, Aaron Chestnut, Alexis Wilson, Audrey Heath, Lillyan Ball, and Emma Gunn.

Together, these students gathered at the Krey’s home and created eight bed frames for children that are experiencing a time of need, a truly commendable act of service.

Along with the bed frames that were created by the local chapters, other states joined in the contribution with blankets, comforters, pillows, sheets, and protectors being donated as well.

Going forward, the project will potentially return, at least for another year.

Krey said, “I think the plan is that this will be our service project for next year, too.”

This was a fantastic opportunity for local and national FFA students to collaborate and provide a helping hand to local families that need it. Perhaps, if the project is brought back for another year, even more families will be the beneficiaries of a generous act of service.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from domestic violence, ICAN can help you. They service both Grady and Canadian counties and can be reached several ways.
