During the month of April, students in the BKW Explorers 4-H Club raised $1,413.50 for Ukrainian refugee children through their UNICEF Coins for Kids drive.
Community service is an important part of 4-H at BKW, and student members organize and lead all of their club’s activities.
“Our 4-H members voted to take on the cause of fundraising to help Ukrainian refugee children.” said Tammy Fisher, club advisor and BKW teacher. “We placed Coins for Kids collection cans in each classroom in the elementary and high schools, and the students checked them weekly.”
“In addition to their collection at school, the club also received donations from Knox Reformed Church. We are thankful for everyone’s generosity in supporting our Coins for Kids drive.”
The BKW Explorers 4-H Club is open to all students in grades 3 through 11. 4‑H is America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people with the skills to lead for a lifetime.
