Pleasant Valley Explorers Ignite the Spirit
Kudos to the Pleasant Valley Explorers for knocking the Ignite the Spirit opportunity out of the park!
The 4-H club was one of almost 50 student-based organizations participating in the Ignite the Spirit program offered by Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation.
These students put together food baskets and partnered with ASPIRE, East Union schools, and their local food bank to provide meals for area families. Their hard work and generosity will reach over 50 families!
Ignite the Spirit is an extension of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation’s Operation Christmas Meal program and is aimed at increasing awareness of hunger locally and igniting the spirit of service by giving local student groups the tools—pork!—to help even more families during the holiday season.
As part of the program, FFA chapters and 4-H clubs also receive event kits with aprons and masks along with a check for $250 to purchase additional food for the meal.
Keep up the good work Pleasant Valley Explorers!
