4-H Collects HUGS for Youth

Those who would like to help young people in need stay warm this winter can contact an Oklahoma County 4-H member to offer HUGS — donations of new hats, underwear, gloves and socks.

The 4-H members then deliver the HUGS items to churches, schools, community groups and others. 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.

For more information, call 713-1125.
