Whole Hog

The Grassland FFA did the annual Whole Hog fundraiser this year to help support a local Garden Spot High School student who was diagnosed with Cancer this past year. He had no affiliation with the FFA. Yet, the students thought it would be a great way to give back. The Whole Hog fundraiser always helps and support places/ or people in our community. We try and do our best to keep the community better.

This year, the Whole Hog was on Feb. 26th in our Ag. Department. We do this every year for National FFA week. National FFA Week is when FFA chapters around the country celebrate a week-long tradition that began in 1947 when the National FFA Board of Directors designated the week of George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. We served meals and had a dine-in opportunity for students and staff. The meal consisted of a Pulled Pork sandwich, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, and a Cookie. The FFA was greatly represented by members from grades 9-12th who some helped since 7 A.M! We started 6 weeks of planning and sent out letters to local businesses for delivery opportunities. We had support all over our community and it was great! Having great teamwork has gotten us through this Fundraiser.

We are thankful to all who helped and supported this student in a great time of need. We had a great outcome and great time.
