The FCSLA is proud of our local branches. In 2007, our branches devoted a total of 1,635,080 hours of community and fraternal service. The branches also donated over $1.2 million dollars. Many of the causes are listed above, but there are also individual branch members who benefited from their generosity.

Every year, a goal is set for the return of the NFCA Fraternal Activity Report. This report is needed to tally and record all of the community and fraternal efforts of each branch. In 2008, we had a 98% response from all the branches on their 2007 activities. Our organization is very proud of our membership
