We Got Your Back - Service Project

The Texas 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Advisory Board is sponsoring a state-wide community service project for the 2010-2011 4-H year. "We've Got Your Back" is a project that any 4-H club or group can get involved in! 4-H members collect gently used backpacks and/or purses, along with non-perishable food items and basic necessities, such as toiletries. The backpacks are then filled with the food items and toiletries and distributed to people in your local community! 4-H members are then encouraged to report online the number of backpacks and other items collected. For more information, a promotional flyer and a link to the online report, visit the healthy lifestyles program page on the Texas 4-H Website: http://texas4-h.tamu.edu.

If a youth member would like to take the lead on this project for the county, please contact Cory at cmtalley@ag.tamu.edu
