4-H Club is giving back to 131 residents at Harrison House

GEORGETOWN, Del.- During the holidays, clubs are looking for ways to give back and for the Clover Knights 4-H Club it’s no different.

This group of kids is the largest youth group in the state teaching kids life skills, as well as doing service projects, and this year they focused on community service projects.

Their biggest of the year is happening Thursday where they will give the 131 residents that they interviewed at the Harrison House gifts that they shopped for and then carol for them.

Through this club leaders hope that members can see how rewarding it is to give back.

“I want them to learn that giving is so much better than receiving and its so important to give back right in your own community,” Kim Elliott, club leader, said.

“I think it makes me feel really overjoyed that we get to see all the smiles on all the peoples faces as we give them their gifts,” Emma Sparpaglione, club president, said.

The club will bring their presents to the senior living center at 6 p.m.

Clover Knights 4-H club has more exciting service projects to look forward to, like their Easter baskets for veteran homes.

If you or your children want to get involved in 4-H, you can call the Sussex 4-H office at 302-856-7303.
