Today, the Elbert County 4-H program makes another trip over to Casey Jackson Used Cars looking to fill up a building they are raffling off with toys, food, any anything else to make the holiday season special for those in need.
In the midst of a fundraising raffle, the Elbert County 4-H program has decided to hold a unique event in conjunction with their fundraiser says Cooperative Extension Director Clay Talton.
“We wanted to do a community service project along with, and what we came up with is a “fill the building” campaign”, said Talton. “What we have done is partnered with Safehouse ministries, and we are asking people to assist us in donating items at Christmas time.”
Beginning today at 4:00pm, 4-H members will be at the Casey Jackson Used Cars lot looking for donations of various items says Talton.
“People can come and donate non-perishable food items, clothes, toys, and anything like that they would like to give.” said Talton. “On December 20th we are going to take everything to Safehouse ministries.”
The group will be at the dealership until 6:00pm this evening.
Those who can’t make it out to the location of the drop, explains Talton, can drop off any items at the 4-H office located at the old Beaverdam Elementary School building.
All items collected will be delivered to Safehouse Ministries on December 20th.
