At Broadmoor Motors, we are strong believers that being a part of your community means supporting local people, causes and schools.  We’re proud to be sponsors of many different causes and people who are making a difference right where they live.  One of those people is a young girl named Hannah Paddock.  As a member of the Hudsonville Fair Southsiders 4-H Club she’s participating in her 3rd year of the Hudsonville Community Fair where she’ll be showing 2 crossbreed pigs, Wilbur and Sparty.

While participating with the 4-H Club, Hannah has learned how to care for her 2 pigs and take the responsibilities very seriously.  Feeding them twice a day, giving them baths three times a week and walking them are just some of them.  She also works on training them on where to go and teaching them what to do so they’re in tip top Fair shape.

Hannah recently stopped by our Broadmoor Motors Caledonia location to tell us about her pig project and her goal to raise enough money to buy back her pigs at auction.  After she does, she’ll be able to donate the meat to Love Inc., as part of their F.A.R.M. Ministry (Feeding and Reaching Many).  This organization gives food to local food pantries and churches in the community, and combined with other fair and producer donations, was able to distribute over 18,000 pounds of meat to area food pantries and shelters in 2014!

Buyers Ribbon Hannah hopes to take again.

After speaking with her about her pigs and seeing how passionate she was in her mission to donate them to Love Inc, we knew we wanted to help sponsor her and we invite you to help her in her quest to raise enough money to buy them back as well.  The Hudsonville Fair runs from August 24th-29th with the auction taking place on August 27th.  If you would like to donate, please contact Burt Paddock at 616.260.2553, email bpaddock@davenport.edu or mail a check (made out to Burt) to 4740 Van Buren St. Hudsonville, MI 49426.
