Hats, underwear, gloves, and socks are among some of the most needed items for the unhoused population during the winter months. We are collecting these items until November 5th.

As a club or individual, make a collection box (or several) to place at your local school, church, community center, etc. Bring your collections to the extension office and we will deliver them as a county.

We donate to the Homeless Alliance and Citizens Caring for Children.
What club should you join?
Oklahoma County 4-H has so many amazing clubs!

If you are new to the county or to 4-H in general, get in touch with one of our super volunteers and check out a meeting.

Don't see a club in your area or project area? Consider starting your own club today!

Want to start a 4-H Club? The qualifications include:
  1. At least five youth members from two or more families.
  2. Certified volunteer(s) who care about working with members, teen leaders and parents.
  3. Maintain a necessary/appropriate adult to youth ratio. (1:8 in most cases)
  4. A structure that gives members the shared responsibility for making decisions and operating the club.
  5. An organized, fun and educational program planned by members, volunteers and parents.
  6. Six or more club meetings during the year.
  7. Participation in learning experiences outside of the local group.
  8. Involvement in the community through service-learning.
  9. Personal evaluation and recognition of progress on individual and group/club goals.
  10. Effective blend of all five components of the 4-H Recognition Model.

The process for creating a new club begins by submitting a Club Charter Application to your county OSU Extension office. A group requesting a charter must the agree upon the following:

  • The use of the 4-H name and emblem is granted on the basis that membership in the 4-H group named above of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service is open to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, or disability and is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
  • The 4‑H club/group is the local learning group in which 4‑H members are involved. Club activities are critical to 4‑H as they advocate both leadership and cooperation among club members.
