4-H Poinsettia Sale Supports Orange County Youth

Posted

Are you looking for festive holiday decorations or perhaps gifts for family or friends? If so, then now is the time to order a beautiful poinsettia plant from the Orange County 4-H Program.

Each year the Orange County 4-H Association sponsors the Poinsettia Sale to support 4-H youth development efforts. Proceeds from the annual sale provide scholarships and clover dollar awards to be used toward 4-H project activities. Our 4-H Clubs also share in the proceeds and earn nearly $3000.00 for the benefit of their 4-H members. As an added bonus, we offer the option to order a plant that will be donated to a  local senior living facility to bring holiday cheer to the residents.

Learn by Doing

The Florida 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach and caring adults to help youth gain the knowledge and life skills they need to be productive, responsible citizens. In Orange County, kids can participate in 4-H through community clubs, after-school programs, summer camps, and school enrichment programs. The 4-H Program is open to youth ages 5-18 and offers project work in a wide variety of subjects to spark a desire to learn and do, and develop valuable life skills.
