10 Who Make a Difference: Mayville Blue Ribbons Strivers 4-H Club

Posted:
CALEDONIA, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Mayville Blue Ribbons Strivers 4-H Club gives back to the community by growing food for those who need it. This group of people is one of our KTTC/United Way of Olmsted County 10 Who Make a Difference award recipients.

The Mayville Blue Ribbons Strivers 4-H Club built and maintained four planters last year in order to donate fresh produce to a local food shelf. The club grew more than 270 pounds of produce last year, and this year, built four more planters to grow even more.

Group leader Mark Jennings said the best part for him is seeing the kids get enjoyment out of giving back to the community.

"All of the kids, they were very proud of the produce that they helped raise, as it was all their efforts that produced the food and it helps the community," Jennings said. "I think all the 4-Hers have a great sense of pride in what's been produced here."

Each of the KTTC/United Way of Olmsted County 10 Who Make a Difference honorees will be honored at Soldiers Field at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
