Jett Garren of Grandview, a 16-year-old member of Community 4-H Club and a Texas 4-H Global Leadership Delegate, worked with Hill College Vice President Lizza Trenkle to organize a service project to supply food and personal care items for the Hill College Student Resource Room. 

Garren is a Healthy Texas 4-H Youth Ambassador and concentrates his community service efforts toward solving the problem of food insecurity. College students are a particularly vulnerable group in terms of food insecurity, and Garren wanted to help Hill College students overcome that obstacle by giving back in the true spirit of the season. This service project will last all year.

The college’s student Resource Rooms stock personal care items, basic school supplies, drinks, non-perishable food, and other necessities. Any Hill College student with a valid Hill College ID is eligible to receive goods by visiting the Resource Room on the Hill County Campus, in the Administration Building, or on the Johnson County Campus, in the Student Center.

The Resource Rooms operate entirely on donations of goods, as well as monetary donations. Monetary donations are accepted in the form of cash or check made payable to Hill College with Resource Room in the memo line. For more information on the Resource Rooms, contact Scott Nalley, Dean of Students, at 254-659-7793 or email at snalley@hillcollege.edu.
