Christian Co. 4-H Makes Blanket Donation

(TAYLORVILLE) — On Dec. 7 and 9, the 4-H Youth Leadership Team hosted a Christian County Community Service Workshop at the Christian County Extension Office.

The 4-H Youth Leadership Team and 4-H members in the county donated fleece material to make blankets. Local youth participants came to the office to help make tie blankets and they recently donated them to Taylorville Memorial Foundation. The blankets will be given

to patients throughout the hospital. “Our youth participants really enjoyed making tie blankets, and we hope they provide comfort to patients at Taylorville Memorial Hospital,” said Christian County Youth Development Program Coordinator Alexis McDowell. “We are looking forward to holding this workshop each year.”
