AgriLife Extension Family,
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.
Also, the Texas 4-H Foundation has set up an account for people to make financial donations to help these 4-H families with meals and lodging. If you would like to support these young 4H'ers and their families, please send your checks or money orders to:
Texas 4-H Foundation
P.O. Box 11020
College Station, Texas 77842
(on the memo line state " El Paso 4-H Youths")
If you would like to make an Online Donation, please go to the Texas 4-H Foundation website at www.texas4hfoundation.org. Click on the DONATE Button on the home page. From here you will be taken to PayPal. Under the "Specify Donation Requirements" box, please type "El Paso 4-H Youths"
(Only Paypal fees will be deducted from your contribution. Your tax deductible donation will be the actual amount donated.)
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Foundation office at 979-845-1213.
Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.
