The Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Club recently completed their “Stuff the Turkey” community service project.
The idea was brought to the club by Hope Baysinger, a committee was appointed and the project was underway.
The original idea was to collect food and toiletry items for the Sanborn County Food pantry, which then evolved to collecting new or gently used winter gear for all ages. Committee member Bailey Feistner worked with her sixth grade class and teacher Mrs. Rosemarie Delvaux to promote and assist with the project.
Over 350 gloves, mittens, hats, coats and snowpants were donated through the school and Stuff the Turkey collection boxes at area businesses and churches. The donations were then distributed at the Woonsocket School. Any winter gear left over was donated to the Rosebud Indian Reservation. A box of donations was also delivered to the Sanborn County Food Pantry.
