For generations, youth have participated in and benefitted from the Weld County 4-H program. One of the program’s biggest advocates, Jean Hoshiko, championed the 4-H program not only through her words but also through her actions.
Please help us continue to grow great Weld County leaders and honor a woman who committed so much time and effort to the program by donating to the endowment. To learn more about the endowment,Go to www.weld4hfoundation.org.
