CLARENDON - Tractor Supply Company, the retail farm and ranch store located on Route 7 in Clarendon, has announced it will offer shoppers the opportunity to support Rutland and Addison area 4-H youth programs through $1 donations at the register. In exchange, customers will receive paper clovers to sign and post in store windows. The program is scheduled to run from March 26 - April 18.
"We've involved with local 4-H clubs since the store opened. Now, Tractor Supply Company is proud to have an official chainwide relationship with 4-H," said Jim Wright of Tractor Supply. "For us, this is an outstanding way to support our current and future customers and future team members, and it's a way to give back to the Rutland County communities we serve."
Donations will help fund area 4-H programs that support the organization's three mission mandates: citizenship, healthy living, and educational advancements in the areas of science, engineering and technology.
4-H is a community of six million young Americans and has been in existence since the start of the 20th century. 4-H programs are designed to provide practical, hands-on learning opportunities to assist youth in reaching their full potential.
