70 Years of 4-H
The Valley View 4-H Club is seven decades strong! The oldest known 4-H club in Nebraska, the Valley View 4-H Club began in 1948 when seven calves were donated. The club steadily grew over the years and has served hundreds of young men and women. The club is an extension of the Home’s longtime connection between our youth and agriculture.
Today our residential care youth have the opportunity to participate in 4-H where they not only build positive character traits that will benefit them for years to come, but also reap the therapeutic benefits of working in the fresh air with animals at our Cooper Memorial Farm. Our 4-H program serves at-risk youth from neighboring NOVA Treatment Community and Uta Halee Academy as well.
How It Helps
As evidenced in the video above, the Home’s 4-H program plays a vital role in helping our youth develop self-confidence, learn the value of hard work, practice patience and learn to act responsibly. Your support of the Home is very much appreciated and will allow us to continue to make a positive impact on youth across Nebraska through the 4-H program for years to come.
A Unique Way to Contribute
A donation of grain, feed or livestock offers unique tax saving opportunities for the donor by reducing overall taxable income and providing a charitable benefit without filing for a charitable deduction. This donation also creates a growth opportunity for young men and women who have had few opportunities in life.
You should always review donation opportunities with your personal tax adviser.
