Cape May Court House – The Fall 2023 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC) starts October 4 and runs through Sunday, October 15. Shoppers and other supporters of the Cape May County 4-H Youth Program are invited to donate at the checkout by purchasing paper clovers for $1 or more while in the TSC store located at 3810 Route 9 South in Rio Grande. Donations may also be made online on the TSC website at https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/cms/4h.
This event marks the 13th year of collaboration between Tractor Supply and National 4-H Council on the in-store and online fundraiser that benefits national, state, and local 4‑H programs. Since 2010, TSC has helped raise over $14 million through the Paper Clover fundraisers for 4-H programs throughout the country impacting over 69,000 youth by offering hands-on experiences in leadership and camping.
In Cape May County, the funds raised are used to provide 4-H youth scholarships to state and national 4-H leadership conferences and state camping programs. “Our 4-H’ers have many opportunities in 4-H to build the leadership skills and self-confidence they need to succeed in their lives and careers. More youth can participate in these programs now because of the partnership that 4-H has with Tractor Supply Company,” says Linda Horner, 4-H Program Coordinator for Cape May County.
John Knecht, manager at TSC Rio Grande, said, “A number of our customers are involved or know someone who is involved in the 4-H Youth Development Program in Cape May County, and we are proud to be part of this initiative that benefits the children of our community.”
