MaxYield Contributes Funds towards Clay County 4-H Membership Dues

(l to r) Isabel Dehrkoop, county youth coordinator, Sarah Dirks, in-school and adult program coordinator and Jo Engel, youth human sciences program coordinator accept MaxYield’s contribution that will decrease the cost of 4-H for members in Clay County.

MaxYield Cooperative recently made a contribution of $1990 towards the membership dues for all Clay County 4-H members. The check, presented on December 4, will pay $10 of the $35 state dues for 4-H members in the county. This membership not only allows students to showcase and compete with their projects at the Clay County Fair and Iowa State Fair, it also provides them with opportunities to participate in conferences, workshops, and community service.

“We are thrilled to continue our support of local 4-H,” said Chad Meyer, MaxYield client relations/communications leader. “We want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families, especially families that have multiple children enrolled. Also, by paying a portion of each 4-H member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission of supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”

The cooperative contributes nearly $13,000 to 4-H in seven Iowa counties annually.

“We believe that 4-H is one of the cornerstones in developing youth and it provides an excellent foundation to build strong families. 4-H also provides a great way for young people to learn more about agriculture,” Meyer said.
