Jefferson Countyâ€™s Barnyard Buddies 4-H launched a community service project in October to raise money for the local food pantries in Jefferson County.
The response from the community has been great, and the club thanks all who have donated thus far.
The club has now expanded its drive to nearby DuBois.
Members were invited to decorate a Christmas tree in the DuBois Mall.
During their October meeting, the members made decorations for the tree.
Voting for the best tree is by donation to the food pantry.
