WATERTOWN, N.Y. — Every year 4-H’ers in Jefferson County participate in a number of 4-H programs to help them develop the skills they need to succeed in their life and career. This fall, Tractor Supply stores are continuing their long-standing partnership with 4-H for the 2019 Fall Paper Clover Campaign to make it possible for more youth in the community to experience 4-H’s youth-led, hands-on programming.
October 9, 2019 Jefferson County 4-H will be holding a Tractor Supply Paper Clover Campaign Kick-off Event at the Tractor Supply on Arsenal Street from 3 to 7 PM. Families that come will be able to make a s’more over the biofuel stove and learn about all that 4-H has to offer.
October 9-20, 2019 Jefferson County Tractor Supply customers can participate in the 2019 Fall Paper Clover campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. Customers can also donate when making online purchases. The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to individual Jefferson County 4-H members wishing to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the state. The number of scholarships distributed to students following the fall campaign will be determined based on the total amount raised.
Since it began in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $14,500,000 in essential funding. The fundraising effort directly supports numerous 4-H programs in Jefferson County.
