Tractor Supply Company supports 4-H

Tractor Supply Company will host its semi-annual paper clover fundraiser, benefiting the National 4-H Council, beginning next week.

From March 27 to April 7, Tractor Supply will donate proceeds from paper clovers purchased in stores or online toward scholarship funds for 4-H youth to attend camps, conferences and other developmental programs across the country.

Every donation will benefit youth within the state it was collected, according to a media release.

“We look forward to this program each year because it allows us to invest in youth who are passionate about impacting the world around them,” said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at TSC. 

The nine-year partnership has generated more than $12 million in funding, the release said. The fall initiative raised nearly $2 million and provided for more than 14,000 students to develop skills in animal care, woodworking, professional networking and civic responsibility.

4-H clubs and members who participate with their local stores will be eligible to win a $100 Tractor Supply gift card through the Paper Clover Participation Sweepstakes.
