January Ignite the Spirit Events

posted on Thursday, February 3, 2022

We are back with the last few installments of our most recent Ignite the Spirit Program events!

Pocahontas County 4-H members are doing good in their community with the help of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation’s Ignite the Spirit program.

Students prepared a pork loin meal for the community on Jan. 8. The County Council members chose a menu that included pork loin, baked potato, corn and cake. With help from adult volunteers, 4-H members prepared 200 meals for carry out or drive thru. The remainder of the pork was donated to families in need during the holiday season.

We met these service minded 4-Her’s when they picked up their pork loins and kits for the meals at the Algona Operation Christmas Meal stop.

This 4-H group is a participant in Operation Christmas Meal’s Ignite the Spirit program, aimed at supporting students who wish to help fight hunger, locally. 

Ignite the Spirit is a program of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation and Iowa Select Farms and offers student FFA and 4-H organizations two cases of pork loins, a $250 check and kits so they can develop local partnerships and seek ways to help families in need. #IgniteTheSpirit
