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.”
The Paper Clover Campaign has taken place in the spring and fall every year since 2010. The spring 2019 Paper Clover, generated nearly $50,000 in contributions from Michigan residents.
“We are very fortunate to have Tractor Supply Co. as a partner for 4-H, not only in Michigan, but across the nation,” said Jacob Decker, state leader for Michigan 4-H Youth Development, MSU Extension. “The funds raised from TSC campaigns make possible a myriad of experiences for our youth in Michigan and for that we are very grateful.”
