4-H Winter Community Service Project: Blanket Drive

— Written By Winter Blanket Drive flyer

N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County will be holding a blanket drive for the Reconciliation House of Burnsville during the months of December and January. 4-H’ers can participate in this community service project in several different ways.

  1. Youth can collect blankets (new or clean and like new) and then turn these into the Yancey County office by January 22, 2021.
  2. Youth can participate in the take and make virtual activity where they will pick up the supply bag from our office and then attend a virtual class where they learn how to create their blanket (no-sewing involved). Youth will then turn in the blanket they made to our office. There will be two sessions which youth can attend. Supply bags can be picked up from the Yancey County office starting Monday, December 14, 2020.
    • Session #1: Monday, December 21, 2020, at 4 p.m.
    • Session #2: Monday, January 4, 2021, at 4 p.m.
