The Busy Bison 4-H members and leaders make stockings and fill each one with candy for Veteran's at the Veteran's Hospital and also for residents in local nursing homes for Christmas.
Members are now busy cutting out the stockings to prepare for Christmas 2011.  If you would like to send us your cards please contact our leader Brenda Miller at (304) 363-7789 or email her at
We are always accepting Christmas cards and other greeting cards. For more information please contact us.

This year we have recycled over 29,312 greeting cards from 9 states, California, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Texas, Vermont and Indiana. Our members are hard at work cutting stockings and circles out of the cards. The stockings are filled with candy and given to people in nursing homes, hospitals and shelters. The circles will be used to make Christmas ornaments and sold as a recycled craft at Christmas time.
We would like to say How! How ! and Thank You to all our friends and supporters for all their help with our recycling drives.
