4-H Paper Clover Campaign

Alliance partner National 4-H Council has again partnered with the Southern States Cooperative retail stores to implement the 4-H Paper Clover campaign for 2008.

The campaign, running through Sunday, October 19, is a consumer-driven fundraising promotion which allows consumers to purchase a paper clover at the register for $1. Fifty cents of each $1 donation will go to the local 4-H program and the remainder will go to the National 4-H Council to underwrite the campaign’s promotion. Locally, the money will be spent on 4-H clubs, camps, as well as in-school or after-school programming.

According to the Southern States Cooperative, select stores participating include those in Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. A full listing of participating stores can be found at 4-hbrandnetwork.org.
