Greener Fields 4-H Club & Dr. Augustine Kellis Support Geauga Hunger Task Force by Continuing their Food Drive

May 6, 2020

Greener Fields 4-H Club, in partnership with all of Geauga County 4-H and Dr. Augustine Kellis, will again be running a food drive for the Geauga Hunger Task Force (GHTF). Our drive this year is being led by club secretary, Jayme O'Neill. The GHTF supports six local food pantries in Geauga County, as well as provides support to NextStep, to groups that deliver home based meals, to provide lunch meals to Seniors at Chagrin Falls Park Community Center, financial support to local churches providing community meals, and financial support to Claridon Cares which provides summer lunches to students.
All donations and money from 4-H clubs and businesses who give through the 4-H drive, will be matched up to $25,000.  In 2019, the Geauga 4-H and business donations, plus the match from Dr. Kellis, totaled over $36,000!

If any club wants to send a financial donation, please mail it to the Geauga Hunger Task Force (check made out to them), Attn: Claudia Toth, 209 Center St., Chardon, OH 44024. Please indicate in the memo line that it's for the 4-H food drive. If it's not a club check, please also include the club name so your club's participation can be noted. If possible, also let Christine Belliveau know of the donation by email at or 440-313-2864.  

Because of COVID 19 and the suspension of community service activities through 4-H that prohibit food collections through July 6, Dr. Kellis will also match personal donations made through the drive.If a personal donation of food items is made, please contact Christine or Jayme at 216-346-5027 so that club participation and the match can be recorded.

Thank you all for your past help and participation! This help will be needed this year more than ever.
