The Sharon 4-H Club of Spring Hill, which has been in establishment for more than 75 years, focused mainly on community service projects this past 2012-2013 year.
Club members rang bells for the Salvation Army outside of a Big Lots one Saturday morning this past winter. The club also collected supplies to do a teacher’s luncheon for Satchel Paige Elementary School, which is an underprivileged school in Kansas City, Kan.
The club gathered baby items for the Advice and Aid Pregnancy Center and also helped box up and distribute food for Harvesters. Members went on an educational tour of Cedar Cove Feline Conservatory and Education Center, and decided that another community service project would be to make a donation to the center.
To end the year, the group will be having a book drive for Reach Out and Read Kansas City and doing a BackSnack Program Aid for Mission South Side.
