Clover effort raises $7,000 for 4-H kids

HOULTON, PRESQUE ISLE and MADAWASKA, Maine — Maine 4-H youth can learn valuable leadership skills thanks to $7,079 donated by Maine Tractor Supply customers through Paper Clover, a biannual fundraising campaign held in partnership with National 4-H Council.

Earlier this month, Maine Tractor Supply customers purchased paper clovers for donations at checkout in stores and online. Every Maine donation benefits Maine youth.

2018 marks the ninth consecutive year of Tractor Supply’s Paper Clover campaign. The company’s biannual fundraiser has collectively generated more than $13.9 million in essential funding over its history, due in large part to the commitment and in-store participation of local 4-H groups.

“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 this fall.
