Shout out to the Curry Combs 4-H Club! For the last several weeks, they’ve been collecting toys to donate to the Robert Wood Johnson Children’s Hospital. If you’ve been to the Ag. Building recently, you know they collected quite a lot of toys!! Pictured here are Serafina and Giana, President and Vice President of Curry Combs, respectively. This is the second year that Curry Combs has done the toy drive and these 4-H’ers look forward to it being an annual event. As you can see from the picture, the efforts of these 4-H’ers will bring a lot of happy faces to kids that might need a little extra joy in their lives right now. Super thanks Curry Combs for all your hard work!! And additional thanks to everyone who made a donation to this!

Join the NJ 4-H team for the World Food Prize NJ Youth Institute. It's a great opportunity for youth in grades 9-12 who are interested in exploring topics in food security! Work with a team to learn about food security issues locally and around the world, work with a mentor to write a research paper about a country and topic of your choice and present your research at the World Food Prize NJ Youth Institute held on March 3rd at Rutgers University (New Brunswick campus).

The team will meet virtually on Thursdays from 7-8pm. Sessions are recorded so attendance at all 5 sessions isn't necessary. However, attendance at the March 3rd event is mandatory. Learn more about the event at Rutgers here:
