BRENTWOOD —National 4-H Council has announced the launch of the spring 2015 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks the sixth year of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store fundraiser, benefiting state and local 4 H programming in each of the communities where a Tractor Supply Company stores are located.
“Tractor Supply stores in Rockingham County have provided tremendous support for our local 4-H programming. We are especially grateful for their participation in the Paper Cover Campaign and for reaching out and involving 4-H members in activities at their stores,” said Joe Drake, 4-H Program Coordinator.
The spring 2015 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place Wed., April 22 through Sun., May 3. Shoppers at the Brentwood, Derry, and Plaistow stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Rockingham County by choosing to purchase paper clovers for a $1.00 or more at checkout.
Last year the TSC 4-H Paper Clover Campaign provided more than $1.5 million to 4-H across the country. All proceeds raised directly benefit 4-H, with seventy-percent of funds being returned to state and local 4-H programs. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, afterschool programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics.
4-H, the nation’s largest youth development and empowerment organization, cultivates confident kids who tackle the issues that matter most in their communities right now. In the United States, 4-H programs empower six million young people through the 109 land-grant universities and Cooperative Extension.
