Morro Bay High School FFA members gave to the community by donating to a couple of organizations over the holiday season.
The chapter hosted a Kiss the Pig fundraiser, where students were able to vote for faculty members or students to kiss a baby pig by donating money. They raised $80 at the event, which was given to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County along with boxes of food donated by FFA members.
In addition, the members hosted a toy drive for Toys for Tots.

Transitions-Mental Health Association has received $2,500 from Central Coast Funds for Children.
The funds will provide teens in the San Luis Obispo County Youth Treatment Program with the opportunity to enter the equine-facilitated psychotherapy program operated by Gina Sears, a marriage and family therapist.
The experiential treatment involves several aspects of horsemanship and has proved to be successful in contributing to youths’ rehabilitation, according to a news release from the association.
