Tractor Supply Company, the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, raised more than $3.2 million for 4-H programs across the country through the Paper Clover Campaigns over the last four years.
Tractor Supply Company and Del’s Feed and Food Supply customers have the opportunity to purchase paper clovers between April 23 – May 4 for $1 or more during checkout. All funds raised will be used to support 4-H youth development program activities in the communities where Tractor Supply stores are located.
“We were so thrilled by the results of last year’s Paper Clover Campaign, and with the help of our dedicated customers we hope to meet and exceed that goal this year,” said John Wendler, senior vice president of Marketing for Tractor Supply Company. “Partnering with 4-H gives us the opportunity to enhance our store’s communities and provide support to local organizations.”
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. 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.
“This event marks the fourth year of collaboration with Tractor Supply Company,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. “This continued relationship provides us with the necessary resources to manage and strengthen our 4-H organizations across the U.S.”
