Guthrie County Extension and Outreach will be doing two summer projects that we are needing assistance from the community to make possible. Guthrie County Extension will be collecting donations throughout the month of April. The two projects are Youth Summer Kits with STEM related activities youth can do at home. These kits will be sent home with youth from our programs this summer. Our other project is Guthrie County 4-H Day of Service. Guthrie County 4-H Day of Service will be held June 19 for Guthrie County 4-H’ers to help create six projects to be donated to local organizations. These projects include: tie blankets for New Opportunities and 3C’s. Hospital care kits for Tori’s Angels. Bed time bags for Guthrie County Sheriff’s Office and local fire departments. Military care packages for local soldiers currently deployed. Braided dog toys for local animal shelters and door decorations for local nursing homes. Collection boxes will be available through the month of April at the following businesses: Guthrie Center- Hometown Foods and Dollar General, Panora- Hometown Foods and Ben’s Five and Dime and Stuart- Hometown Foods. Donations can also be dropped off at the Guthrie County Extension Office. For any questions call us at 641-747-2276.
