Ranchita Canyon 4-H celebrates the holiday season
Club collected donations, crafted with the elderly, and celebrated the season
–This week, the Ranchita Canyon 4-H Club released news of several different donation efforts and activities that they conducted over the holiday season.
In November, the Ranchita Canyon 4-H Sheep Group contributed to The Season of Hope toy and food drive as a community service project. They collected games, toys and non-perishable food items. They met during their monthly sheep meeting at the Paso Robles Grange.
On Dec. 19, Ranchita Canyon 4H members went caroling for donations in a Paso Robles neighborhood behind Haggens. Bags were left on doorsteps the week before with a list of donation items needed. As members picked up bags of donation items, they left candy canes and sang carols. Over 140 pounds of food was collected, and over 5 bags each of items went to RISE and the North County Humane Society.
The club had a Christmas party on Dec. 7, where they collected food for the Food Bank, Toys for Tots, and Coats for Kids. There was a costume contest and Santa came to visit. Families ate together at the Paso Robles Grange and celebrated the holiday.
Club members created crafts at Ada’s Vineyard Lodges in Paso Robles on Dec. 5. The club members gathered around the table with the residents and decorated snowflakes.
