The member pantries of the Shiawassee Hunger Network and the Board of Directors of Shiawassee United Way wish to thank the community members and businesses who donated fair auction animals to the Shiawassee Hunger Network. There are not words to describe the appreciation felt by the local pantry volunteers who see weekly the devastation that hunger causes in the lives of so many who live in Shiawassee County.
A special thank you is in order for the Junior Livestock Association, the Small Animal Association, Shiawassee County Farm Bureau, and the Shiawassee County Fair Board of Directors whose cooperation made all of this possible. We also wish to highlight and thank Shiawassee County 4-H and Future Farmer of America clubs for their food drive done during the fair.
