Snack Pak 4 Kids Corn Harvest-Big Success

Over 160 volunteers arrived early Saturday Aug 10th to help harvest over 15,000 ears of corn. The corn was loaded into two semi-trucks donated by Baldwin Distribution and Affiliated Foods. We distributed over 1,500 bags to children and families at 6 Amarillo elementary schools. A special thank you to David and Jackie Cleavinger for donating the land and space to grow this corn for the community. Thank you Monsanto for donating the seed.
