Challenger's second annual Spud Drive Fundraiser helps Maine students 

BANGOR - During October, Challenger is selling premium Aroostook County "Innovator" russet potatoes as a fall fundraiser. "We are currently taking orders for 50 lb. bags that we are selling for just $20 each (40 cents/pound). All of the proceeds from the Fall Spud Drive will be used to help fulfill Challenger's mission to inspire Maine's students in math and science education," said Susan Jonason, executive director. She added, "This has been a terrific year for growing potatoes. Satisfaction is guaranteed with each bag sold."

"With the cold weather season upon us, as well as the holidays, local food pantries will have an increased demand for food supplies," said Jennifer Therrien, education director. "At just $20 per bag, we suggest that people buy a bag for themselves to enjoy and purchase an additional one to give to their local pantry, to help those in need. Challenger benefits, food pantries benefit -- this is a total win-win-win opportunity."

To purchase potatoes, please call Challenger: (207) 990-2900 ext. 3, or order online with a convenient form: Payment by check is preferred (payable to: Challenger).
