4‑H Service from Home

In 4‑H, we pledge our HANDS to larger SERVICE. While at home, we can still fulfill our commitment to service in many ways. The ideas on our 4‑H Service from Home page can be done individually or all members of a club can work together on the same project. The needs of our communities are still there in some ways more than ever before!
