Pigs 4 Kids
The largest, most wide-spread public art fundraiser to hit Floyd County. Our pretty porkers and stylish swine banks are designed by local artists and NAFCS teachers and students. These porcelain “pork”-fections are displayed at local businesses around our community and waiting for you to fill their tummies watch our social media for when this herd of pigs makes their appearance. 100% of proceeds will fund meals for needy kids in our community through Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County.
If you are interested in adopting your own pig they are available for auction through the New Albany Floyd County Education Foundation annual fundraiser.
A few times every month, participating area restaurants will host a spirit day for Blessings in a Backpack Floyd County, giving us 10- 20% of their sales. Remember to “say before you pay” that you’re BIAB Floyd County so we get credit for the sale. Flow us on social media for upcoming dates.
Education Celebration! is your chance to enjoy dinner and an auction while showing your support for our remarkable public schools in Floyd County! It’s open to everyone: parents, grandparents, educators, alumni, business leaders, and community supporters.
