Jeff Davis Parish 4-H participated in the KLFY Food for Families Food Drive on December 14, 2011. 4-H'ers collected and donated a total of 3,647 nonperishable food items.

Kali Gist, the Food Drive Director for Jeff Davis Parish, said, “The 4-H donation was the largest donation for Jeff Davis Parish. The donation will help to feed numerous families in our parish this holiday. We are so thankful for the hard work the 4-H'ers did to help our community."

4-H'ers from Jennings Elementary 4-H, Hathaway High School 4-H, Bethel 4-H, Blazers 4-H, 4-H Junior Leaders, 4-H Dairy Club and Lake Arthur Elementary 4-H participated in this service learning project.

4-H agent Kori Myers said, “Service Learning is an important project in 4-H where youth learn the value of helping others. The food drive is one of the many 4-H service learning projects we do throughout the year. During this holiday season, Jeff Davis 4-H is happy to help as many families as we can."
