Little Hawk Clover Kids give back

Nov 25, 2013
Photo by: Washington County 4-H The Little Hawk Clover Kids rotated to four different community service stations. Several craft items were available to fill clear Christmas bulbs for ornaments to take to the U of I Children’s Hospital.

The Little Hawk Clover Kid Club met Nov. 19 for an evening of community service and giving to those in need. They had several service project stations going throughout the night for the 28 members to participate in.

The group spent some time defining community service and ways to help those in need. As a group they collected items for the Ronald McDonald House, made cards and 4-H Christmas ornaments for the U of I Children’s Hospital. They also worked on a large tie blanket to donate to the Children’s Hospital.

Clover Kids is a fun 4-H program for children in kindergarten through third grade to participate in hands-on activities designed to build many life skills. Sarah Rodgers is the volunteer leader for the Little Hawk Clover kids with the assistance of parents Jenni Hershberger and Casey Peck. If interested in helping this growing club for the Wellman and Kalona area as a leader, please contact Amy at the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811.

4-H sets the example for youth to value community service and model how to give back on a regular basis. 4-H encourages youth to get involved in the community and give their time and talents to those in need. Washington County 4-H is in progress of planning a 4-H county wide Make a Difference Day, if you have suggestions of projects or groups in need, please contact Amy Green at the Extension Office.
