First Lady Karen Pence meeting with Ivy Tech culinary students

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – First Lady Karen Pence is visiting Ivy Tech Community College on Friday to meet with students studying Culinary Arts.

Pence will visit Ivy Tech culinary students in a class where she will donate 215 of Indiana First Lady’s Charitable Foundation cookbooks and Indiana-shaped wood cutting boards to the program.

Later Friday morning, Pence will hold a press conference discussing her phone drive initiative with HopeLine from Verizon. HopeLine refurbishes donated cell phones and gives them to domestic violence survivors or sells them to raise funds toward the program.

Last year, 1,367 cell phones were donated from state employees.
