Even though Passaic County 4-Her’s have not been able to meet in person during this COVID Pandemic that didn’t stop them from continuing their yearly tradition of making Valentine’s Day Cards for Passaic County Meals on Wheels participants.
For the last seven years Passaic County 4-Her’s have been make Valentine’s Day Cards for Meals on Wheels participants during their January and February monthly club meetings. This year was a bit different but the pandemic didn’t stop our club members from continuing this tradition.
Club members received Valentine’s Card material kits from the Passaic County 4-H office in early January and spent time at home and during virtual Zoom meetings making Valentine’s Day Cards for the Meals on Wheels program. Once club members completed their cards they coordinated a no contact pick-up/drop-off schedule, returning completed cards to Passaic County 4-H.
Club members feel it’s important to provide service to their communities, especially during these challenging times. Over almost 1000 cards were created by our Passaic County 4-Her’s this year and delivered to Passaic County Meals on Wheels scheduled to go out with meal delivery around Valentine’s Day.
“This is just one of the great ways our club members can continue to participate in service activities safely from their homes,” said Marycarmen Kunicki, Passaic County 4-H Agent.
NJ 4-H Clubs are not permitted to meet in person during this time but have continued to meet virtually participating in their monthly club meetings, virtual events, and activities. NJ 4-H has been working hard to keep current club members, leaders, and families engaged throughout this pandemic.
