Hundreds of youth in Texas 4-H and out-of-state 4-H programs gave their “heads, hearts, hands and health” to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas, said Dr. Toby Lepley, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service state 4-H youth development specialist, College Station.
“The compassion and outpouring of generosity by 4-H members and adult volunteers in Texas and other states has been overwhelming,” Lepley said. “They have demonstrated the kind of character and selflessness we have come to expect from those in the 4-H family. We are proud of them and we are extremely grateful for everything they have done.”
Texas 4-H is the youth development component of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
