2017 Tractor Supply Co 4-H Paper Clover Campaign

2017 Tractor Supply Paper 4H Clover Campaign will start October 415, 2017.

Visit our Stark County TSCs and support the local, state and National 4-H Youth Program.

Our local TSCs  are great supporters of the Stark County 4-H Program. We thank them for their continued support!

Thanks for all you do!!

David Crawford

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, will continue its successful partnership with National 4-H Council by hosting its semi-annual Paper Clover fundraiser for 4-H students nationwide. The in-store donation event will be held October 4–15.

Tractor Supply customers can participate in the Fall 2017 Paper Clover Campaign by purchasing paper clover emblems during checkout. Donations, which begin at $1 and have no cap, fund scholarships that send 4-H youth to 4-H camps, conferences and development programs where they learn everything from animal care to civic leadership.

“We created the Paper Clover fundraiser because we know how important local 4-H groups are to protecting a way of life that’s built around community and service,” said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply Company.

National 4-H Council and Tractor Supply have worked closely together to provide 4-H members with the tools they need for success. Their partnership has yielded more than $11 million to support 4-H programming since 2010. Earlier this year, the Spring 2017 Paper Clover Campaign raised nearly $825,000, resulting in 16,301 scholarships awarded to youth attending camps or other leadership experiences.

Individual 4-H clubs are encouraged to participate at their local Tractor Supply stores during the fundraiser. Many groups will hold bake sales, car washes and other activities to help boost donations. For example, the dedication of 4-H students in Timpoochee, Florida allowed them to attend a local 4-H camp where they learned new skills, including archery, sports fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, cooking and more. In Columbia, Tennessee, 4-H students learned about animal care and participated in a variety of team-building and leadership activities at camp.

“We could not be more thankful to the Tractor Supply customers who have helped make Paper Clover such a successful event over the past eight years,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “Every clover sold contributes directly to an amazing 4-H experience for youth who may have otherwise not had the opportunity. “

Hurricane Relief Kits Service Project

 

Each year after I sell my animals at the Stark County Fair, I take at least 10% of my proceeds and donate them to a charity or complete a service project. This year I want to help OMCOR in their work helping those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. I have chosen to put together Hygiene and School kits and am asking for your help in collecting the supplies needed to fill these kits.  My 4-H club, Beech Creek, and Lexington Grange will also be helping me with this project.

October 8th at 2:00 p.m. Aldersgate UMC will hold a “Blessing of the Animals” at their pavilion and the public is invited. This will also be a collection day for kit supplies and completed kits. We will also be blessing those items and those who donated/packed them that afternoon before preparing them for shipment.

Items can be dropped off at Aldersgate UMC or you can contact me at 330-823-6830 and we can pick them up. Monetary donations are also accepted and can be made through Beech Creek 4H, 13116 Snode St. Alliance, 44601 or through Aldersgate UMC. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by the recent hurricanes and those to come.

Thank you for your help and support,

Jenna McNeil
