On April 25 and May 2, Jones County 4-H’ers collected canned goods at Harveys and Ingles to donate to the Mobile Food Pantry of Jones County. The proceeds were donated in order to aid in assisting those in need in our community. In total, 4-H’ers collected 653 canned goods and other non-perishable items and worked with the Mobile Food Pantry on July 14. The goal for 4-H’ers was not only to help collect canned goods, but to help those in need directly. Participating 4-H’ers were Layna Connell, McKinleigh Stripling, Aliya Martin, Jacob Livingston, Luke Peterson, Samantha Peterson, Sarah Peterson, Raeley Findlay, Haley Phillips, Harley Shook and Derek Shook.

What is 4-H?
4-H is an educational organization for youth that promotes citizenship, communication skills, service learning through community projects, and much more. 4-H begins in the 5th grade and continues through high school or until your 19th birthday is reached.
In-School Club Meetings
Club Meetings are a core part of the 4-H program throughout the state of Georgia. Programming for 4-H Club meetings is designed to corellate with age-appropriate state educational standards. We meet in the schools with 5th through 8th grade students. Senior (9th-12th grade) 4-H members and homeschool 4-H members meet on a monthly basis at the Jones County Extension Office. Below, you will find links to more information about each of these clubs, including a meeting agenda, schedules, monthly newsletters and special announcements for each club level.
