Join Val Verde 4-H during in June of 2020 for their INSPIRE KIDS TO DO Series! Val Verde 4-H Youth will be creating videos to teach other youth life skills that will come in handy for the rest of their life!
A part of the the 4-H motto and pledge is “Give your Hands to Larger Service” and one part of the Inspire Kids to Do series is to share the importance of community service.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas food banks are serving 88% more clients than this time last year. Feeding Texas reports that food donations are down at a time when demand at food pantries and food banks has exploded as people have lost jobs and income. The number of volunteers at food banks and pantries has also declined by more than 70% causing some food pantries to close due to inability to serve clients. Others are closing due to lack of food available to distribute. Food banks have increased the number of mobile distributions due to the closure of some food pantries. Unfortunately, they have had to turn people away from these mobile distribution sites, because they handed out all the food they brought before they ran out of people to serve. As a result, Val Verde 4-H will be organizing the Inspire Kids to Do food drives at the county level to benefit local food pantries!
I challenge YOU to give back to our community and by donating a can of food. Can food can be dropped off at the Dink Wardlaw Ag Complex (300 E. 17th Street) or drop off arrangements can be made by calling 830-774-7591.
