Clover Clippers 4-H Club Supports Sufficient Grace

Written by Trenton Vance, News Reporter, 6.18.2019

The Madison County Clover Clippers 4-H club had the privilege to support Sufficient Grace for their community service outreach. Sufficient Grace provides evening meals for children in six school districts within Madison, Union, and Clark counties. Sufficient Grace’s mission is to make sure that no child experiences hunger after school. We collected individually-packaged, nonperishable food items that they could put into the boxes that will be given to the children. Sufficient Grace continues to grow and serves more schools each year. If you would like to donate or get more information about this wonderful organization, go to www.sufficientgrace2012.org.
