Missouri 4-H Foundation receives $2,500 grant from Pioneer Hi-Bred
COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri 4-H Foundation is pleased to announce that Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, donated $2,500 to the Missouri 4-H Community Service grant program. Missouri 4-H is the youth volunteer education program of University of Missouri Extension, University of Missouri and Lincoln University.
The funds will support Missouri 4-H groups in completing community service projects across the state. The mission of the Missouri 4-H program is to create environments in which young people are valued, contributing members of their community. Community service projects help youth develop as volunteers and leaders and assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills and forming attitudes that will enable them to become the self-directed, productive members of society that 4-H represents.
"The Missouri 4-H Foundation is very pleased to have the support of Pioneer Hi-Bred. Community service projects are an integral part of teaching Missouri youth about the importance of giving back to their communities and demonstrating to each 4-H member that they can make a difference. Pioneer Hi-Bred makes it possible for our youth to participate in these community service activities that support our mission to provide opportunities for Missouri youth to strengthen their leadership and citizenship skills."
