Today is the day to Stand Up & Holler for UF and Florida 4-H! It’s UF Giving Day!
Giving Day is an annual event that involves everyone in a one-day fundraising effort to support their favorite UF programs! For me, that’s the 4-H Camps – Camp Cherry Lake, Camp Cloverleaf, and Camp Timpoochee.
We’re asking each of you to give towards 4-H today. It could be just a few dollars or more but it’s just as important for us, the youth, to contribute. These are our camps, our clubs, and our members that benefit from it.
So I challenge each and every Florida 4-H member to give a little today to support Florida 4-H.
Will Eubanks is serving as the 2020-2021 Florida 4-H State Council Reporter. As a 13-year member of Micanopy Friendship 4-H in Alachua County, Will has led leadership activities at the state, national, and international levels. His favorite 4-H projects have been entomology, forestry, civic engagement, leadership, and camp. Through 4-H, Will found his passion for camp and the amazing benefits it has for youth. He will be attending ABAC in fall 2021 for a forestry degree and plans to be a camp naturalist and eventually a camp director. His goal is to inspire youth in nature…while kayaking and singing around the campfire.
