Members shop to help supplement healing House, Luna County’s shelter for survivors of domestic violence

DEMING – Luna County 4-H stands by the pledge taken by 4-H members across the nation. That creed read, “I pledge my hands to larger service,” and that is just what Luna County 4-H did on Tuesday February 20, 2018.

Each year the 4-H program participates in Food Link Day to donate meat, produce and much more to the local Healing House, Luna County’s shelter for survivors of domestic violence. It is the 4-H programs largest community service project.

Thirty Luna County 4-H members and adult volunteers help shop at Peppers Supermarket – a tradition they have kept throughout the years – for these items that will help supplement the many needs of the residents at the Healing House.

Luna County 4-H Council partnered with Luna County Farm and Livestock Bureau and Border CowBelles to bring a total of $1,200 to this shopping trip.

“It is good for them (4-H members) to learn the sense of giving back to their community” said Jack Blandford Luna County Ag/4-H agent.
