For many years, 4-H clubs have urged members and supporters to wear green in November to show their support for the organization.
The Show Your 4-H Colours promotion has also been a way to fundraise by selling green 4-H T-shirts. But this year, “young people need us now more than ever, as they navigate the impact of COVID-19,” the organization says.
This year, $4 from each sale will be given to the provincial chapter where a T-shirt was bought. (A T-shirt costs $20 and can be ordered at showyour4hcolours.ca).
Meanwhile, individual clubs in Alberta have been supporting local charities, such as food banks and health-care foundations, through efforts such as selling steers and ‘charity animals’ online.
