Donation Helps KS 4-H Youth

Updated:

A fundraising campaign aims to help 4-H members learn valuable leadership skills.

Kansas Tractor Supply teamed up with National 4-H Council for their biannual fundraising campaign. They raised $7,704 through the Paper Clover campaign. The money will help send Kansas 4-H youth to camps, conferences and youth development programs.

"Our loyal customers and dedicated team members continue to support 4-H through Paper Clover because they see the value in supporting the future of agriculture within their own communities and across the country," said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply Company. "4-H programs, camps and conferences help develop today's youth into tomorrow's leaders, and the goal of Paper Clover is to expose more youth to those growth opportunities."

Earlier this month, Kansas Tractor Supply customers participated in Paper Clover by purchasing paper clovers, the emblem of 4-H, for a monetary donation of their choice at checkout in stores and online. The spring initiative raised more than $956,000 nationwide through customer donations that are awarded as scholarships to 4-H camps and other leadership events.

"Since the beginning of Paper Clover, we have seen the fundraiser grow each year," said Jessica Holmes, store marketing manager at Tractor Supply Company. "To have the opportunity to directly play a role in the development of 4-H youth is the reason why we work so hard to support this mission."

This is the 9th year Tractor Supply has ran the Paper Clover campaign. Over that time, it has raised more than $13.9 million dollars nationwide.

"To see just how much Tractor Supply communities support 4-H and their local youth is incredible," said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO of 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 will return to Kansas Tractor Supply stores this fall, from Oct. 3 to Oct. 14. Identical to the spring, customers can participate in the 2018 Fall Paper Clover campaign by purchasing paper clovers during checkout in stores and online at www.TractorSupply.com.
