Tractor Supply, 4-H partner for fall Paper Clover Campaign

Tractor Supply Company will continue its partnership with National 4-H Council by hosting its semi-annual Paper Clover fundraiser for 4-H students. The in-store donation event will be held Oct. 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 in-state 4-H youth to 4-H camps, conferences and development programs where they learn everything from animal care to civic leadership.

National 4-H Council and Tractor Supply have worked 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.

The Newnan Tractor Supply Store is located at 90 Market Place Drive.
