Kenosha County 4-H Clubs stuff the bus for The Sharing Center

Several Kenosha County 4H clubs were represented on Nov. 4 to Stuff the Bus for the Sharing Center.

4H youth asked Pleasant Prairie Target shoppers on their way in to the store, to consider making a purchase to donate on their way out of the store.  Signs had been placed inside the store earlier in the day to remind shoppers of needed items for the Sharing Center.  The shoppers were generous. Also, many area community members stopped by to donate items to Stuff the Bus.

Between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. the Jolly Green Giant Bus III was loaded with: 1,574 pounds of food and toiletry items; 506 pairs of socks; 117 pairs of gloves; 59 hats; 5 scarves; 70 winter coats;  31 pairs of boots; 109 shirts and 23 pairs of pants.

Brighton Bombers 4H club helped unload the bus at the Sharing Center on the following Monday.

On Nov. 11, Bristol Strivers 4H club met at the Bristol Shooting Range for a fundraiser. From 8 a.m. to noon coffee and donuts were sold to the patrons of the range.  The money earned from the fundraiser will be used for club projects and future community outreach opportunities

The clubs extend many thanks to the Target of Pleasant Prairie management team, Bristol Shooting Range, Pick  n Save Kenosha  for donating donuts, Starbucks in Kenosha for donating coffee, Dean Elfering for driving the Jolly Green Giant III, Corie Bies and family for coordinating events, and to the community for supporting  4H youth.
