Project Red Ribbon
Project Red Ribbon is MADD Canada’s longest running public awareness campaign. For 30 years, MADD Canada Chapters and Community Leaders have reached out to their communities during the holiday season to distribute red ribbons and remind people that the deaths and injuries resulting from impaired driving are senseless and preventable tragedies.
The High School FFCA campus recognizes that MADD is more than just mothers, but also fathers, sons, daughters, friends, relatives and neighbors looking out for each other and you. Our campus appreciates the message that we want to protect young people from the serious dangers and consequences caused by alcohol and that is why we are supporting this opportunity.
This campaign is personal for one of our former teachers, Brenda Lavallee, who taught at FFCA for many years. Her daughter Jillian was killed by a drunk driver on May 2, 2015. The Lavallees, Brenda and Dan, have since become advocates for MADD. They are passionate about preventing further drunk driving deaths in Canada. They hope to do this through awareness and education. There are currently four deaths every day in Canada resulting from drunk driving.

FFCA High School Casino
The next FFCA High School casino will be on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10, 2017 at Deerfoot Inn & Casino.
The casino is the greatest source of funds raised at FFCA High School. At our last casino, in February 2016, we raised $70,000! Funds have been used to purchase: spin bikes, a shot clock, a portable PA system, X-country ski equipment, two sets of 30 Chromebooks, as well as four scholarships for qualifying graduates.
We wouldn’t be able to do it, however, without our volunteers: parents, grandparents, friends, staff, and former students. If you are 18+ years old, you can volunteer. No experience is necessary and training is provided. You will have fun, enjoy a complimentary meal, and contribute 9 hours of volunteer time while helping to raise necessary funds.
Daytime shifts are from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Evening shifts are from 7:00 pm to 3:45 am.
Count room shifts are from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.
Interested? Email email@example.com for more information and to learn about the different volunteer positions available.
