Lisa Connelly, 4-H Exhibits Coordinator, has agreed to coordinate the annual Sussex County 4-H/NORWESCAP Food Drive. There will be a pre- collection for 4-H clubs that wish to participate. When clubs come to set up their club booth displays, there will be a brown bag with a note requesting the bags be filled with non-perishable foods and left under the booths/tables by Tuesday, August 5.
The following is a suggested list of non-perishable items:
canned fruit and vegetables
paper goods: (tissues, napkins, and individually wrapped rolls of toilet paper and paper towels)
Thank you to all the clubs that have participated in the past. We look forward to everyone’s participation.
If you have any questions, please contact Dave or Michelle in the 4-H Office.
Frankford Township participates in New Jersey Clean Communities (a statewide litter abatement program). If your 4-H club meets in Frankford Township you can get involved in a hands-on program to learn about litter abatement.
Frankford Township offers the following programs:
One Day Clean Ups
Neighborhood Clean Ups
Adopt-A-Road Program… And two major clean ups a year!
If your club is interested in doing a neighborhood or roadside clean up to earn grant monies for your club, please contact:
When Viktoria-Leigh Wagner suggested that her 4H Club, the Krafty Krafters, should have a collection of stuffed animals to give to the area’s senior citizens living in assisted living facilities and beanie babies to donate to a local pediatric ward, she never suspected it would be such a success! Four huge garbage bags filled to capacity were collected over a period of several weeks. These goofy kids decided to take a silly photo of themselves surrounded by the stash collected.
Pictured in the photo bottom center going clockwise are Jordan Toll, Kristin Ware, Lizzie Wiltshire, Collin Ware, Nicole Whitehead, Ethan Horn, Kassidy Wagner, Katie DeGroot and Chloe Schadegg.
