Below is the message from Lawson Hamilton of the D5 Council and the Texas 4-H Council. Even though the District 5 Roundup is over, it’s still not too late to donate a gift card. Just bring it to State Roundup!
“My Hands to larger Service”As District 5 4-H’ers we know the value of community service. Now YOU have the opportunity to help an incredible group of families and gain state-wide community service experience. Texas 4-H Council has chosen to sponsor a project benefiting military families, specifically through a camp called Camp Corral. This camp is a summer adventure exclusively for the children of military personnel who have been wounded or killed in action, held at the Texas 4-H Center in Brownwood. To benefit these deserving families, Texas 4-H is collecting gift cards for stores and restaurants, between $5-$20 in value, that will be donated to the families of kids attending Camp Corral. The main collection will take place at State Roundup in June, but D5 wants to get ahead of the game and start collecting now! Don’t delay, buy your gift cards today and bring them to District Roundup in Lufkin on April 27th for the D5 collection! See the attached flyer for more details. Thank you!
