DOBSON — The Tractor Supply Company (TSC) stores in Mount Airy and Elkin joined 4-H in support of local youth with the 4-H TSC Paper Clover Campaign, a national in-store fundraising effort to benefit state and local 4-H programming in each of the communities where a Tractor Supply Company store is located.
The success of last fall’s campaign spurred TSC’s continued support of the community fundraising event. Beginning Friday through April 25, shoppers at the Mount Airy and Elkin Tractor Supply Company will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Surry by purchasing paper clovers for $1 at checkout. All funds raised through this local 4-H TSC Paper Clover Campaign will be donated to 4-H and will support local camps, after-school programs, and other 4-H youth development program activities in Surry County.
“We are excited to begin our spring Paper Clover Campaign with the tremendous support of Tractor Supply Company again this year,” said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “Tractor Supply continues to be an excellent partner in our efforts to drive local support of, and community involvement in, 4-H programs throughout the country. Their partnership in the Campaign will help provide funding to 4-H in more than 900 Tractor Supply Company communities across the nation, allowing youth to explore interests in everything from animal science to robotics.”
4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. National 4-H Council is the private sector, non-profit partner of 4-H National Headquarters, located at the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) within the USDA. The 4-H programs are implemented by the 109 Land Grant Universities and the Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local Extension offices across the country.
