A recent fundraising effort at Tractor Supply stores across the country to support 4-H programs raised more than $956,000 through customer donations, according to a company announcement.
Vermont youth will benefit from the retailer’s Paper Clover fundraiser, a biannual campaign held in partnership with the National 4-H Council.
Vermont Tractor Supply customers participated by purchasing paper clovers — the emblem of 4-H — for a monetary donation of their choice at checkout in stores and online.
According to a company spokeswoman, the Vermont portion of the fundraiser totaled approximately $3,000.
Awarded as scholarships to 4-H camps and other leadership events, every Vermont donation benefits Vermont youth.
“To see just how much Tractor Supply communities support 4-H and their local youth is incredible,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO of the National 4-H Council. “Thanks to the Paper Clover partnership, more youth are given the opportunity to experience and benefit from 4-H and our programs.”
The Paper Clover campaign returns this fall, from Oct. 3-14. For more information on the program, visit TractorSupply.com/4H.
