Annual 4-H Poinsettia Fundraising Event
4-H Poinsettias make Festive Holiday Décor and Great Gifts
Poinsettias are a perfect way to instantly decorate for the holidays and they make excellent gifts for everyone on your list. The Orange County 4-H Program is pre-selling foil-covered red, white and pink poinsettias in various sizes as well as beautiful 12″ poinsettia & mum bowls ready for pick-up the first week of December. Each plant sold generates support for 4-H club members and the overall county 4-H program. Everyone benefits when you purchase poinsettias – you enjoy a festive home or office and our 4-H members gain increased opportunities to participate in activities that help them learn and grow into contributing and successful members of society.
Benefits for Youth
Research confirms that 4-H has its greatest impact when members are fully engaged in the program. Youth are encouraged to participate in extended 4-H learning opportunities at the local, state, and national level. However, these events can be costly, so financial support is necessary to ensure these opportunities are available to all 4-H members. During the 2017-18 year, the Orange County 4-H Association awarded more than $6,000.00 in scholarships for youth to attend camps, educational workshops, leadership events, and competitions supporting positive youth development. Successful fundraising such as the poinsettia sale is critical to the continued support of these valuable opportunities for our local youth.
