Coarsegold 4-H sold Kids Day papers Tuesday at Raley’s in Oakhurst for Children’s Hospital Central California. We sell Kids Day newspapers every year to help raise money for ill children at the hospital in Madera. The money we raise helps children with illness, diseases, cancers, or serious injuries.
The Kids Day paper costs $1 and many people even give more than that. This year, we raised about $150 selling Kids Day papers. Anyone can donate to help these kids in the hospital. This is just one of Coarsegold 4-H’s community service projects.
We try to do at least one good thing a month for our community. Our community service group leader is Deonne Gonzalez and her son, Roman Gonzalez, is the junior leader for the group. It was really cold Tuesday and the Raley’s manager gave us hot cocoa when we were selling the Kids Day papers. It was really good and kept us warm. Thank you to Raley’s for supporting us and letting us sell Kids Day papers in front of your store.
Community service is important because anyone can help somebody. Coarsegold 4-H also is working on boxes for soldiers. We are collecting things like soap, toothpaste, deodorant, non-perishable food, candy, and other things to send to them so they know that we support them and are thankful for the job that they are doing...
