Eau Claire (WQOW) – There was a guilt-free reason for people to indulge in burgers and custard on Tuesday: National 4-H week.
Kids collaborated with Culver’s on Brackett Avenue to support Eau Claire County 4-H.
4-H was started in 1902. More than a hundred years later, the organization continues to provide after-school programming to help kids develop life skills and build confidence.
A portion of all the sales from Tuesday’s fundraiser went to the Eau Claire County 4-H Older Youth Council.
Rachel Hart-Brinson joined the non-profit in 3rd grade. Now, she serves as the program coordinator.
“I learned a ton through 4-H: self-confidence, event planning, project management, all sorts of life skills that serve you better to be better adults,” Hart-Brinson said.
To learn more about 4-H, you can meet members during Discovery Day at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library on Saturday, October 12 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Members will demonstrate their projects and show off some rabbits. They’ll also provide make-and-take crafts for kids.
