After a record-breaking 4-H Paper Clover campaign in the spring, Tractor Supply Company, in partnership with National 4-H Council, is hosting another Paper Clover campaign in October.
Oct. 9-18, Tractor Supply Company and Del's Feed and Farm Supply customers may purchase paper clovers for $1 or more during checkout.
At the end of the campaign, 70% of the funds raised will benefit state and local 4-H youth development program activities. The remaining 30% of the total funds are donated to National 4-H Council to help connect more young people across America to high-quality 4-H youth development programs.
"The Paper Clover fundraiser is a significant part of Tractor Supply Company's support of 4-H programs throughout the 1,300 communities we serve," said Christi Korzekwa, vice president, marketing, Tractor Supply Company.
Korzekwa says the program will help provide essential funding to more than 1,000 county 4-H programs.
"For many years, the fundraising event has allowed us to provide thousands of 4-H youth across the country greater access to 4-H programs," said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. "We are thrilled about our continued partnership with Tractor Supply Company as it drives the excitement of local community participation and support for 4-H programs, and therefore the success of the 4-H Paper Clover campaign."
The campaign raised $787,769 during the 12-day spring Paper Clover campaign. The amount broke the record for most monetary donations during the four-year collaboration, and customer donations increased 25% from the 2013 fall campaign.
