This past weekend several El Paso 4-H members were burned while working a food booth at a 4-H fundraiser. Three of those youth are now in the Burn ICU at University Medical Center, Lubbock, TX.
Many 4-H families are already providing the Extension faculty in Lubbock with non-perishable foods, books, cards, and letters to support these families during this most trying time. If you would like to contribute any of these items, please contact Cory and bring those items to the office by August 19th.
