Successful Holiday Event for Elbert County 4-H

December 30, 2013

The Elbert County Cooperative Extension is coming off a successful Christmas event.

On December 12th and 19th, the Elbert County 4-H program accepted donations from Elbert County residents at the Casey Jackson Used Cars dealership.

The event was held in conjunction with the program’s storage building raffle, and the goal was to “fill the building” with items such as food, toys, and anything else to help make the holidays great for those families in need this time of year.

Cooperative Extension Director Clay Talton says the program will look to hold a similar event next year.

“We look forward to being able to do the campaign again next year”, said Talton. “We’d also like to thank those who came out and donated items that we were able to take and give to Safehouse ministries this year, its greatly appreciated, and it is awesome to give back to the community.”

All the items received were donated on December 20th to Safehouse Ministries.

Talton also wanted to thank Terry and Melissa Black for their donation of the building for the fundraiser, and for helping organize the 4-H event.
