“4-H is a community of young people across America learning
leadership, citizenship and life skills”
Support 4-H Through Your Local Tractor Supply and JOANN Stores
Tractor Supply and JOANN stores across the country are supporting 4-H this spring through their Clovers for Kids and Paper Clover campaigns
From March 1st to April 30th JOANN Stores nationwide will ask their customers to donate towards the 4-H Program through their Clovers for Kids Campaign which is in its third year of operation. Both $1 and $4 donations are available. Purchase of a $4 donation comes with a $4 off a future purchase coupon. In addition, JOANN wants to support individual 4-H’ers involvement by providing a rewards card for 4-H members, leaders, staff and parents. The rewards card gives holders 15% off their purchase every day.
Since it began in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $11,000,000 nationwide in essential funding. The spring promotion will commence on April 29th and run through May 10th. Tractor Supply customers can participate in the 2020 spring campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. This year’s promotion will include a state level contest in which the top five states with the largest percentage increase from last spring’s promotion will receive an additional $2,000.
In Connecticut Tractor Supply funds provide exciting opportunities for 4-H members to attend national 4-H leadership conferences such as National 4-H Congress and Citizenship Washington Focus as well as exciting statewide 4-H events. The JoAnn’s campaign provides support for the 4-H Expressive Arts Day which is held annually and benefits approximately 75 youth.
As a way to thank both JOANNS and Tractor Supply Stores for their tremendous support, the 4-H program will host a pizza party for each of the top selling stores in both promotions.
Visit your local Tractor Supply and JOANN stores this spring to ensure more kids get the chance to participate in hands-on 4-H programs.
