SARATOGA SPRINGS — “I pledge my hands to larger service” is a phrase that all 4-H members are very familiar with. Saratoga County 4-H Teen Council has been putting these words into action through recent community service activities. 

At their February meeting, Teen Council members made fleece “tie blankets,” that were recently donated to local service organizations including Wellspring in Saratoga Springs, and the Veteran and Community Housing Coalition in Ballston Spa. In addition to making blankets, members also brought food and toiletry items to their meeting, and these items were donated to LifeWorks Community Action in Ballston Spa. 

Community Service opportunities such as these are just one way that Saratoga County 4-H is working to achieve its mission of “creating caring, competent and contributing members of society.” 

Saratoga County 4-H Youth Development is open to all youth in Saratoga County ages 5-18. Saratoga County 4-H offers a diverse range of programming opportunities that allow youth to “learn by doing.”  If you would like more information about Saratoga County 4-H you can visit their website at ccesaratoga.org/4-H, or call the CCE Saratoga office at 51-885-8995.
