Donate to the 4-H Flood Relief Campaign through the New York State 4-H Foundation
November 21, 2011
Tropical Storms Irene and Lee left massive flood damage in their wakes across huge sections of New York. Counties from the northeast corner to the southeast region and central New York have experienced flood damage. The devastation of the flooding has displaced 4-H’ers, CCE employees, and volunteers. 4-H families have lost buildings and equipment. 4-H members and entire clubs have lost animals, barns, and materials needed to care for their animals. Some County fairgrounds have sustained major damage to 4-H/Youth buildings, barns and pens.
Donations can be made to help 4-H’ers get back on their feet and their 4-H programs get moving again by donating to the 4-H Flood Relief Campaign through the New York State 4-H Foundation. 4-H in the following counties can be helped by donations to this campaign: Broome, Clinton, Essex, Fulton/Montgomery, Saratoga, Schoharie, Sullivan, Tioga, and Ulster.
Donors may designate gifts to a particular county or counties. Any undesignated gifts will be divided equally among the above counties.
