4-H camp at Echo Lake would not have happen without Paper Clover fundraiser
National Paper Clover Campaign Continues Support of El Dorado County 4-H Youth
Placerville, CA El Dorado County 4-H has announced the launch of the fall 2014 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks the second year of collaboration locally between TSC and El Dorado County 4-H in-store fundraiser.
“4-H camp at Echo Lake would not have happen without support from the Paper Clover fundraiser. Funds raised provided training for counselors and allowed us to keep cost low for camp participants,” Tracy Celio, Community Education Specialist, El Dorado County.
The fall 2014 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place October 8-19, 2014. Shoppers at the Placerville, TSC store will have the opportunity to support 4-H in El Dorado County by choosing to purchase paper clovers for a $1 or more at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to El Dorado County 4-H, and will support 4-H summer youth camp in July 2015. 4-H will have Clover Wagon Rides and a petting zoo on October 11, 12 & 18.
“For many years, the fundraising event 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.”
“The Paper Clover fundraiser is a significant part of Tractor Supply Company’s support of 4-H programs throughout the 1,300 communities we serve,” said Christi Korzekwa, vice president, Marketing, Tractor Supply Company. “We are proud to be able to provide essential funding to more than 1,000 county 4-H programs. These programs make a positive impact on young people that last a lifetime. The continued success of the Tractor Supply Paper Clover fundraisers demonstrate the importance of our 4-H partnership with our customers, team members and communities.”
During the spring 2014 Paper Clover fundraiser, Placerville TSC raised over $1,000 for local 4-H programs. In fact, Placerville was a regional winner for top sales of Paper Clovers! Once again, funds donated during the national campaign will be tracked online and recorded by state and by store.
