Today, National 4-H Council announced the launch of the fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks the fourth year of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store fundraiser, benefiting state and local 4-H programming.
The fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place Oct. 9 through Oct. 20,. Shoppers at Tractor Supply Company will have the opportunity to support 4-H in 1,200 communities by choosing to purchase paper clovers for a $1 at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H, and will support 4-H youth development program activities in the communities where stores are located.
“Through this highly impactful community event, we have been able to raise funds nationally over the past few years for thousands of 4-H youth across the country,” Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council said. “We are more than pleased with the success of the 4-H Paper Clover Campaign, and we are even more honored to continue the tremendous partnership that drives support for 4-H clubs and programs in the communities of more than 1,200 stores.”
In just four years, across 48 states, the TSC 4-H Paper Clover Campaign has provided more than $2 million to 4-H across the country. All proceeds raised directly benefit 4-H, with 70 percent of funds being returned to state and local 4-H programs. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics.
Once again, funds donated during the national campaign will be tracked online and recorded by state and by store. Visit www.tractorsupply.com/4-H for more information on the fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign and to view the donation tracker.
