Month of Service and State Project


Clothing the World

The Florida 4-H State Council is proud to be continuing the State Service Project – “Clothing the World.”  This project is a call to action for 4-H members to engage in service projects that focus on helping those in need by hosting clothing drives, volunteering or fundraising for clothing charities, and making clothing items for those in need locally or overseas. The purpose of the “Clothing the World” project is to exemplify the “Heart” aspect of the four H’s by providing for one of the most basic human needs of people around the world – clothing. 4-H members can use this project at a district, county, and club level.

The State Project Guide below contains sample project ideas and a report back system, so you can share your work with others across the state.


Project Completion

The State Project Committee encourages all youth to participate in at least one state project that is associated with Clothing the World. The committee would also like to recognize the youth that do participate in these projects. Once a project is completed, please record it on the project report-back sheet found in the tool kit below. These record sheets will need to be submitted to Grace Carter by July 3, 2017. The committee would appreciate if pictures were included in these reports.
