EBRP 4-H Jr. Leaders Service Project

Get Involvedpng

Please join us for our next Jr. Leaders meeting on December 12th at 10:30 am.

This year our club has decided to collect new and gently used books to donate to Line 4 Line, a non- profit serving the Baton Rouge area. Line 4 Line is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that works through barbershops to support literacy, close the achievement gap, and provide positive learning opportunities for urban youth through mentor led out-of-school reading and creative programs. The East Baton Rouge Parish 4-H Jr. Leaders Club has chosen to help collect books and funds for Line 4 Line as their service project.

If you would like to donate gently used or new books to the cause please contact a 4-H Jr. Leader or drop off your donation at the 4-H Office by December 9th. Some schools have joined the cause and if your school would like to join please let us know! For additional information access the link below.
