The spring 2016 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place Wednesday, April 13 through Sunday, April 24.
Shoppers at the local Tractor Supply Store at 297 Bells Highway will have the opportunity to support local 4-H clubs by choosing to purchase paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. These funds will support Clemson Extension’s 4-H youth development program activities in Colleton County.
Colleton County has three 4-H clubs: Palmetto Pony Club with leader Robin Barr; LEAPS 4-H with leader Suzanne Butler; and Blue Ribbon Riders 4-H Club with Leader Tania Gooding. The funds raised through the 4-H Clover sale benefit are local 4-H clubs in their participation at the Charleston County Fair, the Orangeburg County Fair, the South Carolina State Fair, the Pullet Chain Project, the Horse Project and several other projects throughout the year. Colleton County 4-H club members also participate in Farm Days and other events sponsored by Tractor Supply Company.
4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. The National 4-H Council is the private sector, non-profit partner of 4-H National Headquarters located at the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) within USDA. The 4-H programs in South Carolina are implemented by Clemson Extension. The Clemson Extension office in Walterboro is located in the Bernard Warshaw Office Complex.
The National 4-H Council announced the launch of the spring 2016 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks the 5th year of collaboration between the organizations and Clemson Extension on the national in-store fundraiser, benefiting state and local 4‑H programming in each of the communities where a TSC store is located.
