EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- The president of the Patriotic Livestock 4-H Club tells NEWSWATCH 12 that giving back to children in need is what makes this event so special.
On Sunday, people from around the community were able to shop and support local crafters and direct sales companies.
"We have some really cool crafters in there. There is everything from homemade stuffed animals to furniture made from wine barrels there is also hand crafted jewelry," Tamara McMahan said.
This is all for the Patriotic Livestock 4-H Club and the portions of the sales help raise money for their club.
From the proceeds Patriotic Livestock 4-H Club tells me that they will be taking a portion to provide Christmas to children in need.
"So the experience for our 4 h kids has been great they sit down a budget and figure out what they are going to get people in the past their gifts and seeing the families receiving it has been goods," McMahan adds.
This year the club has decided to go to a store such as WalMart and "clear" the tree of tags.
