Saratoga County 4-H Project Joy

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County is ensuring all members of our community are feeling “connected” during this pandemic. Residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are at high risk and can feel isolated. 

Saratoga County 4-H Project Joy is a Community Service Project designed to help bring smiles to their faces. Leland Bunting, 4-H Club Coordinator, and Julie Curren, 4-H School Outreach Coordinator, collaborated with 4-H’rs from across Saratoga County to create a video comprised of individual video submissions. These have been compiled and sent by link to Activities Directors in these facilities who can share it with their residents. The goal of this project is to let our seniors know they are thought of and hopefully it can bring them a smile. 

If you know of a facility that you think would like this video, send the activities director’s email address to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will forward the video link.
