Adena Health System continually supports numerous local 4-H clubs and recently the Adena Medical Group presented the Highland County 4-H program with a check for $4,800 which will be used to purchase 800 project books.
A similar donation was made to the Pike County 4-H program for a second consecutive year which will provide 700 project books.
“These funds will allow all members to take one project without bearing the cost of the book,” said Kathy Bruynis, 4-H youth development director. “The books are an educational resource for members to learn about 200 different areas they might be interested in pursuing.”
Adena Medical Group began donating to local 4-H programs in 2013. Through these donations, an estimated 2,000 youth in Fayette, Highland, Jackson, Pickaway, Pike and Ross counties have benefited.
