Placerville’s Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store was recently recognized for winning the Paper Clover Regional Champion award for being one of the top 5 stores to have the highest transaction percentage in its region during the 4-H/TSC Spring 2014 Paper Clover Promotion.
The region included all TSC stores in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California.
Store employees at the Placerville TSC store had over 20 percent of all transactions include a 4-H Paper Clover purchase and were presented with a certificate and rosette ribbon from 4-H on Saturday, July 12 to recognize this achievement.
The 4-H/TSC Paper Clover Campaign is a nationwide, in-store fundraiser that benefits 4-H programming in the communities where a TSC store is located.
The spring campaign raised more than $780,000 that supports 4-H on the local, state and national level.
During the 12-day promotion, the Placerville TSC raised $1,642 for 4-H in El Dorado County.
In addition to the Paper Clover campaign, Placerville TSC has hosted quarterly 4-H awareness events and contributed to Youth in Agriculture fundraiser.
The effort has provided direct support for 4-H camp at Echo Lake and has granted scholarships so youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics.
El Dorado County 4-H is grateful to TSC for its ongoing partnership since the store opened in 2013 and for the Paper Clover campaign.
