4‑H programs empower young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world!  Iowa 4-H is calling all 4-H members, leaders, alumni, judges, and friends to create face masks for their community, including friends, neighbors, hospitals, and care centers. We thank everyone who helped us meet our initial goal of 10,000 masks. We invite you to help us reach our NEW goal of 25,000 masks!  Find out more here and don’t forget to record your donation here.
