Merced County4-H is asking our 4-H families to help donate needed items for the Ferguson Fire. As part of an Emerald Star Project and in coordination with Mariposa County 4-H, we will be collecting items to deliver daily to the fire fighters battling the Ferguson Fire. We are seeking donations of Gatorade, lip balm, baby wipes, eye drops and fruit.
Donations may be dropped off 8 am to 5pm Monday through Friday at the UCCE Merced County 4-H office. Our office will coordinate with our Emerald Star member to deliver the items to Mariposa.
Let's show our fire fighters how much we appreciate them. Thank you for your help!
