Anderson County 4-H Council will receive $355 from the Kentucky 4-H Foundation as part of the Tractor Supply Company (TSC) Paper Clover Campaign, the agency announced.
The Kentucky 4-H Foundation will distribute more than $14,000 to 45 County 4-H Councils.
The campaign is a nationwide, in-store fundraiser that benefits 4-H programming at the local, state and national levels.  During the campaign, the store’s customers can support 4-H by purchasing paper clovers for a $1 or more at checkout.
This is the third year that 4-H and the store have partnered to promote this national campaign. Since April 2010, Kentucky alone has raised $83,956.73 through the campaign, with each campaign raising more money than the previous one.
During the September promotion, the 45 Tractor Supply stores in Kentucky raised $23,594 for 4-H programs. Of the total raised, 60 percent will go to support 4-H programs in the county or area that the TSC store serves. The National 4-H Council receives 30 percent for programming and underwriting the campaign and 10 percent is available to state level programs.
A complete listing of the funds raised at all 45 Kentucky TSC stores is available on the Foundation’s website at www.kentucky4hfoundation.org.
