There was an excitement in the air on Friday November 13th as 13 local youth participated in the Warm Hands, Warm Heart community service project sponsored by Brunswick County 4-H at the NC Cooperative Extension Center. The eager 4-H’ers (ages ranging from 5 to 14) listened intently to instructions from 4-H Volunteer Jane Kulesza on how to construct fleece mittens, in a variety of fabric patterns and colors. The mittens, in both youth and adult sizes, will be donated to First In Families of Southeastern North Carolina. The goal of First In Families is to support people with developmental disabilities and their families to create the lives they want now and in the future. 4-H is proud to support our local chapter.
