Every year, 4-Her’s in Orange County participate in a number of 4-H programs to help improve their knowledge and leadership skills. This fall, Hillsborough Tractor Supply is continuing their long-standing partnership with 4-H for the 2018 Fall Paper Clover Campaign to make it possible for more youth in the community to experience 4-H’s youth-led, hands-on programming.

October 3-14, 2018, Hillsborough Tractor Supply customers can participate in the 2018 Fall Paper Clover campaign by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more at checkout. The funds raised will be awarded as scholarships to individual Orange County 4-H members wishing to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences across the country. The number of scholarships distributed to students following the fall campaign will be determined based on the total amount raised.

“Our partnership with Hillsborough Tractor Supply is critical to helping us raise funding for youth to attend 4-H camps and leadership conferences”, says Jonathon Smith, Orange County 4-H Agent. “The prices of these conferences continue to rise and we want to do our best to make sure these programs are as accessible to all students as possible. This is an opportunity for Orange County residents to invest in the lives of our own young people.”

Since it began in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $11,000,000 in essential funding nationally. The Paper Clover fundraiser, which takes place in the spring and fall, raised over $981,000 during the Fall 2017 campaign. The fundraising effort directly supports numerous 4-H programs in Orange County.
