Livestock Sale Checks – Reminders

If you participated in selling market livestock at Waterford, County or Barlow – Just a reminder to cash/deposit your Livestock Sale checks so the boards/committees can close our their books for the year.

It’s always good to think about how that money will be handled too. Good financial practices include:

  • Save some in a savings account or investment
  • Set aside some for 2021 livestock projects
  • Support a local cause like a charity or your church
  • Spend some on something you need

Toy Drive Results – THANK YOU!

Thank you everyone that donated toys to help with the Marietta Community Foundation’s toy drive to benefit the Washington County Angel Tree Program. Washington County 4-H won $5000 and these funds will be deposited into the 4-H Fund at the Marietta Community Foundation!

Here is a clip from the 11/19/20 Marietta Times article:

The Nonprofit Challenge this year was a toy drive. Participating nonprofits collected new toys between Nov. 2 and Tuesday and delivered them to the foundation at 100 Putnam St. in Marietta.

The foundation raised more than $10,000 in toys that will be distributed as Christmas gifts, Allender said. All the toys will be donated to The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, she said.

“They have expanded to their program to serve 1,000 children this year and the toys we collect during our event will help them significantly,” she said.

Washington County 4-H surged to second place with an 11th-hour toy delivery on Tuesday, Allender said.
