Lucky Clover 48 Hours of 4-H 2020

For National 4-H Week the Lucky Clover 4-H Club collected donations of nonperishable foods for Shawnee Community Services, a local food pantry and free clothing resource for those in need in the Kansas City area. Prior to collecting donations from friends and family, club members sent out information about the food drive using social media and email. Vice President, Abby, provided the material to share what 48 Hours of 4-H is, what Shawnee Community Services provides, the nonperishables most in need, and items for Thanksgiving dinner boxes. The effort was a great success with 589 food items collected and delivered in October. Club member Kyndal was able to obtain a business donation of $200 that will allow Shawnee Community Services to purchase items needed the most.
