Youth Act Seeks Luggage

Rural Action’s Youth Act program is asking community members to donate old luggage for an upcoming service project with a local Girl Power! Group. Girl Power! is a national public education campaign sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services. The program encourages girls age 9-13 to stay active, explore their interests, perform well in school, and improve their self-confidence.

The girls will decorate the luggage during an overnight event October 20-21 at Trimble Elementary and Middle School, and will donate their creations to local foster children. Foster children frequently lack proper luggage for transporting their belongings from home to home. To contribute luggage, contact Sara at 740-767-4938.
