JOANN Loves 4-H: annual campaign supports Florida youth

The 2023 JOANN Loves 4-H campaign, now through May 1 

Spark creativity for young people in your community while doing some creating of your own! When you shop at your local JOANN store, you can support 4-H at the register. 100% supports 4-H, with 70% returning to Florida for 4-H programs.

Support received in Florida is invested in local and statewide programs – including the 4-H Clothing, Textiles and Fashion Project. Through this project 4-H’ers develop practical life skills including sewing, consumer awareness and interviewing. Confidence, entrepreneurship and creativity also grow.
