District 8 4-H is partnering with Diamond E Awards to raise funds for Texas 4-H families effected by Hurricane Harvey. Proceeds from the purchase of shirts will be sent to the state 4-H office to go into the hurricane relief fund that has been set up.
If you are a member/family of 4-H please work with your county office to coordinate shirt orders.
If a County puts together a minimum order of 12 shirts, then their shirts can have their “COUNTY NAME” (Example: Erath County 4-H, Williamson County 4-H, etc.) printed on the shirt.
If you have just a few that want to order a shirt (but not meet the minimum of 12) then they will have “District 8” printed on them instead.
Others not affiliated with a county program but would still like to support these efforts and receive a District 8 4-H t-shirt, you may order directly from D8.
Please mail order forms and checks to:
District 8 4-H
1229 N US Hwy 281
Stephenville, TX 76401
Forms and money must be received by September 21.
