American Farmers and Ranchers Youth Summit Wraps up with over 300 Care Boxes packed for Our Men & Women Serving Overseas

American Farmers and Ranchers Youth Summit Wraps up with over 300 Care Boxes packed for Our Men & Women Serving Overseas The 2022 AFR Youth Leadership Summit wrapped up last week. This year the senior Summit attendees worked on their camp service project. They packed 300 care boxes for American men and women serving overseas and worked on their teamwork skills in the process!

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Intern Cheyenne Leach met with Avery Theodore and Cooper Kline, two campers at the AFR Youth Summit, to talk about this summer's service project.

"There's really nothing better I could think of doing with my summer than being here," said Theodore, a 2nd-year camper at the AFR Youth Summit. This year's service project partnered with the Blue Star Mothers Chapter 5 from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. It means giving them a taste of home," said Theodore, "I just think it's very touching to know that we have the chance to make an impact on a soldier's life."

Cheyenne also got to speak with Cooper Kline, a 1st-year camper at the AFR Youth Summit. "We can give back and give them that feeling of home," said Kline. On top of the two hundred boxes packed by the teen session, the senior session boxed an additional three hundred boxes, totaling five hundred boxes for our service men and women.

"I think it's amazing how they can go and bring those household items and make them feel that they are known and that we know about them and that we care about them," said Kline, regarding the Blue Star Mothers Chapter 5 mission.

For as long as campers can remember, AFR has partnered with different organizations for their annual service project. AFR continues to take part in making a difference, not only in our service men and women's lives but in the youth that are involved as well.
