Rural utility donates to 4-H clubs

Marion County 4-H clubs will receive a $666 donation to help club members pay their way to Rock Springs Summer Camp.

The donation is coming from Flint Hills Rural Electric Cooperative and CoBank, which provides financial services to agribusinesses and rural power, water, and communications providers.

Clubs in Morris and Chase Counties will receive identical donations.

This is the third year Flint Hills has participated in CoBank’s matching-funds donation program.

“We know that young people who participate in 4-H programs will likely contribute to their communities in the future,” general manager Bob Reece said. “We are proud to support the local 4-H clubs that include so many of our local youth.”
