Last year, 4-H members collected around 2,000 HUGS and donated them to Positive Tomorrows, a school for homeless children; the Infant Crisis Center, the Salvation Army, Christmas Connection, Citizens Caring for Children and other groups.
Collection sites for these items also include the Oklahoma County Extension office and offices of Oklahoma County's elected officials, including county commissioners.
The 4-H clubs will be collecting HUGS through the second week of November.
