Brown County 4-H is partnering with (or competing against, however you want to look at it) Clermont and Highland County 4-H to sponsor a Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive. We will be collecting donations from November 1-30. Clubs, organizations, community members, and businesses are encouraged to participate. However, the 4-H club that donates the most items will win a pizza party for their club! Donations can be dropped off at the Extension Office Monday through Friday, 8:00a.m.-4:30 p.m.. The items collected will be donated to Empower Youth to be included in the food packs that will be sent home with kids over winter break.
