Paper Clover 

Tractor Supply “Paper Clover” campaign. TSC staff invite customers to donate $1 at checkout and all funds raised go back to the local 4-H program to support leadership opportunities. For years, Chesterfield 4-H has been able to offer scholarships to deserving youth to attend 4-H camp, State 4-H Congress, and more thanks to the support of Tractor Supply.
