Tooele County 4-H 2024 Service Adventures:   

          

   


  • A BIG Thank You to everyone who contributed to the March 2024 Service Adventure: Birthday Kits for the Food Bank. They were very excited to receive the kits knowing that each one will make a child's birthday an even more joyous occasion. If you enjoyed this service opportunity consider doing it again and taking it to the food bank yourself. The need is always there and they distribute the kits rather quickly. Watch for more Service Adventure opportunities to come!
