We know that 4-H members do Community Service better than anyone. The goal of National 4-H Day of Service is to encourage 4-H members in every county to make a positive difference. National 4-H Day of Service is open to everyone in the community, 4-H members, families, volunteers and community partners. Service projects can be done by individuals or as an entire county 4-H program. No matter what the project, this will be a day to make a difference. 4-Hers can work on projects at any time during the month of April, however April 25 has been identified as the date to celebrate the culmination of service outreach. If you are wondering how YOU can make a difference, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. probably said it best when he shared, “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.
