Everyone probably has shoes in their closet that they don’t wear, don’t like or shoes that their kids have grown out of.  Well, we have something GREAT you can do with them: We are kicking off a shoe drive to raise funds for the IQhub!  Please consider donating your gently used (or new) shoes to the shoe drive fundraiser. With a little help from you, your family and your friends, we can make this shoe drive a HUGE success!!

HOW:

  • Tie or rubber band shoes together

Funds raised in this shoe drive will be used to help the IQhub continue to offer a state of the art facility with museum quality exhibits for all visitors and FREE science field trips for school districts.

If you are not familiar with the IQhub here are a few fun facts:

  • The IQhub is an educational center that welcomes thousands of people each year!
  • The IQhub is filled with educational and interactive exhibits, which take guests through the history of agriculture. Children and adults enjoy exploring the 24 interactive museum quality exhibits and learning where their food comes from.
  • The IQhub charges no admission and offers Transportation Grants to school districts to enjoy a FREE Science Field Trip!
  • The IQhub hosts guest exhibits throughout the year that keeps the museum fresh and attracts new visitors.
  • The IQhub is non-profit organization that operates from donations and sponsorships.

Currently, the IQhub is closed until further notice, but we have still been busy!  Besides reaching out to teachers about virtual field trips, we have been working on grants for new permanent exhibits, giving our website a facelift, creating lessons and online materials to stay connected with IQhub Fans and planning our next rotating guest exhibit… The Art History and Culture of Native Americans.

The IQhub will continue its mission in educating our youth, as well as adults about the history and future of agriculture.  Once again thank you for your support in agriculture and agricultural education.
