Change the World Mask Donation

Hello! I am Charlotte, the vice president of the Change the World 4-H Club. These masks have been cut out, ironed, and sewn from start to finish by club members. They were donated to Columbus City elementary schools because a comfortable mask means the world right now. They are washable and can be worn many times. A few have openings in the bottom to make room for inserting a filter or extra fabric.

Whetstone Community Service Project

Whetstone 4-H'ers Club update: In collaboration with our Walk and Serve community partner, the Clintonville Resource Center, our club members made homemade ornaments and cards for assisted living residents and fleece hats and personal care kits for the homeless for our winter service project. We also participated in the 4-H STEM challenge "Mars Base Camp" during our November 2020 and February 2021 meetings. We were guided by members of the OSU Association of Computing Machinery Women's Chapter, who are also doing some great K-12 computer science community outreach sessions.
