Plogging for a Purpose

Join Delaware 4-H’s October Campaign to Plog for Purple during the month of October when we show our support for prevention and recovery.

Plogging is an activity that combines walking or jogging and picking up litter. Plog alone, with friends and family, or with your school or club.

Monthly raffles are drawn for those who plog and send the pounds of trash, number of bags collected, or a picture of your plogging to Karen Johnston.  

The more you plog, the more chances you will have in the raffle for $100.00 Amazon Gift Card.  We can’t wait to see your pictures!

All the supplies you need are available at our county offices. To sign up, complete this easy form!

Join the Health & Wellness Ambassadors! They are youth 13 and up who want to help get the word out about healthy living and meet via Zoom on the 4th Thursday of each month (except November and December) at 6 pm. Please consider logging into their next meeting on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 6 pm. https://udel.zoom.us/j/99647308772
