4-H MEMBERS HELP SALVATION ARMY
Junior and Senior 4-H’ers were asked to take a couple of hours to help the Salvation Army by ringing the bell for the Annual Red Kettle Drive at the local Walmart store. On Saturday, December 19, several 4-H members bared the cold weather to help with collecting donations for our local Salvation Army store.
Participants included Jake Grantham, Muskan Minhas, Brianna Moreno, Alexandra Rivero, Ishika Sadarangani, Shubh Sadarangani, Florence Shealy, Caroline Spivey, Bubba Vaughan, Miley Vaughan, and Janilla Warren. Adult participants included Liz Batten, Dusti Vaughan, and Charnita Williams. We also want to thank First Congregational Christian Church for helping cover some of the time slots on Saturday as well. Their volunteers were Maggie Bush, Barbara Day, and Rod Purvis.
