4-H seeks help with food baskets

Pulaski County 4 HPulaski County 4-H Clubs in association with the Virginia Cooperative Extension – Pulaski Office, will be putting together Thanksgiving Dinner Food Baskets for families in Pulaski County again this year and need your help.

Over the past 14 years, working through New River Valley Community Services (NRVCS) Social Services, Department of Juvenile Justice, and Pulaski County 4-H Clubs have created over 148 baskets. This year we would like to create 30 baskets for families with children identified by NRVCS, Social Services, Department of Juvenile Justice and the T.G. Howard Center.

As we’ve done the past several years, we are asking for monetary gifts instead of asking for items to be purchased and dropped at the Extension Office. Working with Kroger – Fairlawn, we’ll purchase all the items in bulk and pick up at the same time to then be sorted into family food baskets.

To support this great 4-H service project, mail or bring your monetary gift to the Pulaski Extension Office, located at 143 Third Street, NW, Suite 3, Pulaski, VA 24301, no later than Wednesday, November 15, 2023.

Checks made payable to ‘Treasurer of Virginia Tech,’ Memo: 4-H Thanksgiving Food Baskets. Any gift is greatly appreciated as each Thanksgiving Food Basket costs $95 to create, based on today’s prices.

For more information and to coordinate drop off of your gift, please contact us at the Pulaski Extension Office at 540-980-7761.
