Community Outreach - Supporting Project Pomona
AROUND THE COMMAND
E Co, 1-398th REG, 104th Training Division took some time in April to support Project Pomona, a community-based project designed to help reduce food insecurities by turning vacant land that has been neglected in the Paducah, Kentucky, area into sustainable apple orchards. The fruit is then donated to local agencies to help feed the hungry and those in need.
E Co. prepared the orchard for planting day, cleaned up the vacant lots, planted shrubs, and even planted a few rose bushes for surrounding neighbors of the orchard. This was a great way for E Co. to get their name out and build relationships within the community, ultimately recruiting and retaining drill sergeants in Paducah, Kentucky.
