April 20, 2023 - Purple Up with Wisconsin 4-H for Military Kids
April is the Month of the Military Child #MOMC.
Did you know in Monroe County there is a 4-H Club at Fort McCoy? With at least 2 deployed WI Units, WI 4-H partners to build resiliency and connection. Wear purple to recognize and thank children for the sacrifices they make living the military lifestyle. Kids serve too! #PurpleupDay #Building Connections
Military Connected Youth face unique circumstances, which can be challenging or present opportunities for growth. 4-H programming collaborates statewide with Army National Guard Child and Youth Services. As part of your mission for the month, explore some of the resources Chris found.
