Jefferson County 4-H recently collected more than 3,500 pounds of food during its October food drive. Valued at more than $5,000 that food will mean almost 3,000 meals for the needy.

 

The organizations hosted a food drive at HEB in Beaumont and Market Basket in Nederland. The 4-H programs offers experiences to both urban and rural youth by providing the opportunity to participate in community 4-H Clubs. The food drive was conducted in conjunction with “One Day 4-H,” a program aimed at creating a better community. The program was created in 2009.

By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
