Tooele County 4-H 2022 Service Adventures:   

          

   

  • MARCH 2022: Birthday Kits for the Food Bank! This was a much appreciated service adventure last year and we really wanted to repeat the opportunity again this year! Many of our young friends and their families are not secure in where their food will come from and often rely on our local food bank. Birthday cakes are not usually available. Here's where we can help! Create a Birthday Kit with a cake mix, frosting, candles and a couple of other festive additions of your choice. Put it into a bag or a box and drop it off at the 4-H office by March 30th. We will get them all to the food bank. If you feel your kit would appeal most to a boy or girl or a younger or older youth, please indicate that on the outside of your kit! Last year, Tooele County 4-H provided 65 birthday kits to the Tooele Food Bank. They were all distributed by the end of August. Let's do even better this year! Thanks for your generosity.
