What started out in 2003 as a modest donation of 400 pounds (about 1,600 meals) of ground buffalo for the Iowa Chapter has now grown to almost 60,000 meals in a short 15 years.
With the assistance of fellow board members and their spouses, the Jack Hagens Great Buffalo Giveaway is donated the day before Thanksgiving to three homeless shelters in the Greater Des Moines area and southeast and southwest Iowa, as well.. This is a project we are very proud of.
For the buffalo giveaway this past November, we can’t thank SCI President-Elect Steve Skold and wife Sue enough for participating in this long-running effort. Steve shot a huge bison and donated all the meat.–Nels Spevak
The Iowa Chapter’s fundraiser this past March was a huge success raising the most money in 26 years and enjoying record attendance.
