Chuck Wagon Cowboy Dinner Food Drive:
This past weekend, 4-H Youth aged 8-13 attended 4-H Camp. The theme was Wild Wild West, and the Counselors decided to host a Food Drive as a community service project. Attendees brought non-perishable foods (with a Western twist!), and the donations will be used to provide a Cowboy-themed Chuckwagon Dinner for the Pueblo Cooperative Care Center.
4-H Leaders and Staff would like to thank all the campers and their families for opening their hearts (and pantries) to those in need this summer. See y'all next time, ya hear?
