(Mexico, NY) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Today, the Tractor Supply Company (TSC) stores in Oswego and Fulton 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.
Beginning Friday, March 26, through Sunday, April 18, shoppers at both the Fulton and Oswego Tractor Supply Company stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Oswego County by purchasing paper clovers for just $1 at checkout. All funds raised through this local TSC Paper Clover Campaign will be donated to 4-H, and will support 4-H programming in Oswego County.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 4-H programs serves over 10,000 youth annually through 4-H clubs, in-school enrichment programs and after school programs. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are very excited to be partnering with the Oswego and Fulton TSC stores. Both of these stores have been huge supporters of the Oswego County 4-H Program for many years. It is nice to see a national initiative to assist the local county 4-H programs in their fund raising efforts Ã¢â‚¬Å“, said Linda Brosch, 4-H Team Coordinator for Oswego County Cooperative Extension.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“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,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tractor Supply Company Chairman and CEO Jim Wright. Ã¢â‚¬Å“For us, this is an outstanding way to support our current and future customers and future team members, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a way to give back to the 900-plus unique communities we serve.Ã¢â‚¬Â
