Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store in Lehighton has joined 4-H in support of local youth with the TSC Paper Clover Campaign, a national in-store fundraising effort to benefit state and local 4-H programming in each of the communities where a Tractor Supply Company store is located.

From now, through Sunday, April 18, shoppers at the Lehighton Tractor Supply Company will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Carbon County by purchasing paper clovers at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H, and will support local camps, after-school programs and other 4-H youth development program activities in Carbon County.

"It is wonderful that TSC has stepped forward to help Carbon County 4-H in this way. We are so excited to work with them on this campaign." said Georgia Farrow, 4-H program assistant in Carbon County.

"Many of our stores have been involved with 4-H clubs for years. Now, Tractor Supply Company is proud to have an official chain-wide relationship with 4-H," said Tractor Supply Company chairman and CEO Jim Wright. "For us, this is an outstanding way to support our current and future customers and future team members, and it's a way to give back to the 900-plus unique communities we serve."

"We are thrilled to have the generous support of Tractor Supply Company for our Paper Clover Campaign," said Donald T. Floyd, Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. "This new partnership will help provide funding to 4-H programs in more than 900 Tractor Supply Company communities across the nation, providing opportunities for youth to participate in activities that will in turn help them make positive contributions and become strong, confident adults. We look forward to a successful TSC Paper Clover Campaign this year."

The 4-H program is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. The programs are implemented by the 109 Land Grant Universities and the Penn State Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local extension offices across the country. Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity, and the diversity of its workforce.
