National 4-H Council announced the launch of the Fall 2020 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks the tenth year of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store and online fundraiser, benefiting 4‑H programming in New Jersey.
The Fall 2020 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place October 7-18. Shoppers at any of the 20 Tractor Supply Company stores located in New Jersey will have the opportunity to support the New Jersey 4-H Program by choosing to make a donation at the checkout while at a store or online from the TSC website. Funds raised will be donated to 4-H and will support scholarships for 4-H camp and leadership experiences in New Jersey.
“For many years, the Paper Clover fundraiser has allowed us to provide thousands of 4-H youth across the country greater access to 4-H programs,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. “We are thrilled about our continued partnership with Tractor Supply Company as it drives the excitement of local community participation and support for 4-H programs, and therefore the success of the 4-H Paper Clover Campaign.”
New Jersey Tractor Supply Company stores are located in Allentown, Blairstown, Bridgeton, Egg Harbor Township, Flanders, Hammonton, Hewitt, Hillsborough, Little Egg Harbor, Monroe Township, Pilesgrove, Ringoes, Rio Grande, Sicklerville, Southampton, Sussex, Tinton Falls, Vineland, Waretown, and Washington.
