Clover Campaign Supports Penobscot and Piscataquis County 4-H Youth

Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties, ME – The spring 2012 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place May 2 through May 13. Shoppers at the Bangor and Dover-Foxcroft Tractor Supply Company (TSC) stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties by purchasing paper clovers for a $1 or more at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H to support 4-H youth development program activities in Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties.

In just two years, the TSC 4-H Paper Clover Campaign has provided more than $1 million to 4-H across the country, with 90 percent of the funds returning to state and local 4-H programs. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics.

The National 4-H Council recently announced the launch of the spring 2012 4-H Paper Clover Campaign in partnership with Tractor Supply Company (TSC). This event marks two years of collaboration between the organizations on the national in-store fundraiser, benefiting state and local 4-H programming in each of the communities where a TSC store is located.

This year, funds donated during the national campaign will be tracked online and recorded by state and by store. Visit, for more information and to view the donation tracker.
