Community Service

Fulton County 4-H provides youth the opportunity to practice service to their community through projects, events, and other activities.

Monthly Community Service Projects

Each month Fulton County 4-H undertakes a project or task to benefit local community nonprofits. For fall 2020, all community service projects will take place virtually and youth will complete them individually.

October 2020

Fall wall and door decor for senior citizens - Youth are encouraged to create fall themed wall and/or door decorations for seniors who are living in senior living communities. Decor can be dropped off at your local senior living community (make sure you call before you go!) or youth can drop off finished projects at our 4-H drop boxes at our East Point and Sandy Springs office locations and 4-H staff will distribute the decor to local homes.

November 2020

Thank you letters to essential workers - Thanksgiving is a reminder to engage in gratitude, and this month we are showing gratitude for the essential workers who have continued to serve during the pandemic. Youth are encouraged to write and deliver a letter to local essential workers.  Potential recipients include nurses, doctors, hospital staff, teachers, custodians, postal workers, delivery drivers, grocery store clerks, police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. Youth can deliver their thank you letter to someone locally, or drop off their letter in a 4-H office drop box (East Point and Sandy Springs office locations) and 4-H staff will deliver. If dropping off in a 4-H drop box, please make sure to write who the letter is to on the envelop (such as grocery store clerks, etc.).

December 2020

Holiday cards for seniors - 4-Hers are encouraged to create holiday cards for local seniors during the month of December. Cards can be dropped off at your local senior living community (make sure you call before you go!) or youth can drop off finished cards at our 4-H drop boxes at our East Point and Sandy Springs office locations and 4-H staff will distribute the cards to local homes.
