$10 Bibb County 4-H Fundraiser—Bibb County Extension and 4-H seeks to provide educational hands-on experiences for all youth. Examples are Alabama 4-H Summer Camp, Bibb County Youth Leadership, 4-H Animal Sciences Quiz Bowl/Skillathon and many others. Those programs require registration fees that families cannot always afford. Also, even for 4-H programs that do not require a registration fee, meals, transportation, educational presentations and facility usage often require funds. Therefore, we humbly ask you who are able and willing to donate $10, payable to the Alabama 4-H Club Foundation, to support Bibb County 4-H programs for our youth! Tax-deductible donations are accepted by check, cash, and online at https://4-h.aces.edu/donations/foundation/ . As always, additional donation amounts are welcome! Through the online option, you can use a drop-down window to route your donation specifically to Bibb County 4-H. Checks payable to the Alabama 4-H Club Foundation should be mailed or taken to the Bibb County Extension Office, 183 S.W. Davidson Drive, Centreville, AL 35042. Will you please consider a small donation for Bibb County youth?
