The Kind Hearted 4H group presents a check for $225 to The United Way of Union County’s YEAR (Youth Education, Arts and Recreation) Fund. The group held a fundraiser at Der Dutchman in Plain City and voted to donate a portion of their proceeds to the YEAR Fund.
The 4H group founded in 2006 has 34 members ranging in age from 8 to 18. Members wanted to contribute to the YEAR fund, created to pay the participation fees for kids to stay involved in positive, structured youth programming if their families could not afford the cost.
YEAR has awarded 125 grants for a total of almost $122,000 to qualifying organizations since its inception in 2001.
Kind Hearted 4H has consistently fundraised and donated a total of $2100 to local non-profits since 2012.
