Over 650 individuals participated in the Franklin County 4-H Clover 5K and Walk & Serve on April 6, benefitting 19 non-profit organizations. 4-H Clubs from every part of the county dedicated part of their day to making this event successful and over 2,100 service projects were donated to various charities.
Franklin County 4-H members demonstrated a new level of ownership of this project by researching and planning the event. At the Walk & Serve they shared firsthand stories about each organization’s mission, while participants worked on needed items for the group's clientele. Each non-profit found the Walk & Serve a great place to bring awareness to their needs and remarked how important it was to keep fanning the flame of “serving” in all ages!
