Poultry Club Funds Flocks

The Poultry Science Club raised $2,000 to buy flocks of poultry for farmers in developing countries.

Club members, who had been collecting donations since last fall, gave their money to Heifer International, a charity that works to end hunger and poverty by providing livestock, including poultry, to small-scale farmers and communities, said Crystal Mitchell, the group’s treasurer.

Raising money for Heifer International was one of the club’s service projects. The club was named the top poultry science club in the nation during the International Poultry Expo in January.
