I am very blessed to work for a company that allows us to make a difference in our community! I was again given the opportunity to make a donation to a non-profit of my choice this year. Every single employee participated and chose an organization special to them to donate to. I chose to donate my #GIFT2GIVING donation to my local 4-H club, The Bristol Strivers. This year the Strivers have chosen a new community project and it has taken off. It’s called Blessing Bags. Everyone in our over 100 kids club brings in some non-perishable food items for our bags and we make them once a month. They are distributed to local schools in discrete bags for children who don’t have food at home to be given the opportunity to fill their tummies. My donation will go to the support of making these bags so the kids can shop and make the choices they need to in order to fill these bags.
4-H teaches many things to our youth. They make friends that they will have forever and they learn skills that make them more rounded individuals. 4-H helps give kids extra confidence. They try new things and see that the world has more to offer. It gets them off of the devices and shows them that there are way more things to experience out in the would. Tonight the club also made a difference in their community, and made over 200 candy cane reindeer for our local meals on wheels. Thank you Community State Bank for giving me the opportunity to make a difference in these kids lives and so many more children in need!
