SIGV has partnered with Wendy Weidler, an FFA parent, to present "The White Barn Project". WBP is a clothing exchange for 4H and FFA families. We collected good used donated girls' and boys' white pants and shirts, 4H hats and scarves, FFA jackets, boots and belts before the fair and then distribute them to families. As we all know, children grow out of clothes quickly and the uniform is used for 5 days of the fair and can be very expensive. This free clothing exchange helped over 100 of our Ag students by recycling last year's clothes to this year's participants.
The drop off locations included Interfaith Food Ministry, Riebes, Great Clips, Home Smart, Hay Barn, Simply Country GV, and TruValue Fence in Penn Valley. We distributed clothes to FFA and 4H members at the Pondersosa Hall at the Fairgrounds, Verger Mortgage and at our barn site at the Fair. If you have any clothes or money to donate to this cause, you can get a tax deductible letter from SIGV. Please contact us here if you have donations.
We are very proud to announce that the White Barn Project received the Blue Ribbon Award from the Western State Fair Association for support of the fair and participants.
