Starting today, Tractor Supply is celebrating 4-H clubs around the country with their the Paper Clover campaign that benefits the 4-H students. Each spring and fall, Tractor Supply helps raise money for 4‑H programs through the sale of paper clovers in their stores. This event allows students to participate in the all the fun camp activities
In the most recent campaign, they raised more than $1 million nationwide. Ninety percent of funds raised go back to state and local 4‑H programs to support scholarships for camp and leadership activities. The $1 clovers will be available in stores (or online) now through April 7. The fall campaign runs from Oct. 9 to 20. Check out this video below to see how the donated money is put to use!
Last year, over $2 million dollars was raised through the Paper Clover campaign! With your donations, students across the country received hands on, team building experiences. Since 2016, over 69,000 4-H youth benefited from the Paper Clover donations.
According to Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply Company, there is immense value in supporting 4-H youth and their skills and interests. “Supporting today’s youth means supporting tomorrow’s leaders,” said Korzekwa. “Since 2010, Tractor Supply customers and team members have understood and supported the Paper Clover mission—to help provide vital hands-on learning opportunities and empower more 4-H youth to become leaders in their lives, careers and communities.”
According to their website, “Tractor Supply stores in communities across the country have long supported 4-H clubs, and now, Tractor Supply Co. has entered into an official partnership with the National 4-H Council as your source for 4-H project supplies.”
