Teen 4-H Council collecting items for families in need

The Davie County 4-H Teen County Council is collaborating with Just Hope to collect supplies for families in need in Davie County.

Supplies can be brought to the Davie County Extension Office, 180 S. Main St., Mocksville, through June 17. Supplies can be dropped off any time in the outdoor 4-H drop box located outside the office.

The following are needed:

• Hygiene Needs: 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner (full size bottles), Dial soap, gender neutral deodorant, Chapstick, razors, lotion, hand sanitizer, toothpaste and toothbrushes.        

• Laundry Needs: detergent (any kind), dryer sheets, Clorox, stain remover.

The Davie 4-H Teen County Council is open to all 4-H youth 11-18 years old. It serves primarily as the youth advisory board where older 4-H youth can have input on 4-H programming and events. The council also offers a chance to learn life skills (resume writing, leadership, public speaking, etc.) and learn about other programs and agencies in Davie County.

The council meets on the fourth Monday of the month from 5:30-7 p.m. The next county council meeting will be Aug. 23 at the Cooperative Extension Office.

For more information on how youth can join or about the supply drive, reach out to 4-H Extension Agent, Danny Lough, at danny_lough@ncsu.edu or call (336) 753-6100.
