County 4-H youth get boost from Del's Farm and Home Supply

Local 4-H youth will benefit from community support through Del's Farm and Home Supply's coming Paper Clover Campaign.

From Friday, April 15, through Monday, April 25, shoppers at Del's Farm and Home Supply in Sunnyside can purchase paper clovers for $1 at checkout.

"We are delighted that Del's Farm and Home Supply is partnering with 4-H to acknowledge young people and the difference they make in the community," said Pat Boys, director of the Washington State University Extension 4-H.

All funds from the clover purchases will be donated to 4-H to support local camps, after-school programs and other 4-H youth development program activities.

The success of last fall's campaign spurred Del's continued support of the community fundraising event.

"We are excited to begin our April Paper Clover Campaign with the tremendous support of Del's," said Donald T. Floyd Jr., president and CEO of National 4-H Council. "Del's continues to be an excellent partner in our efforts to drive local support of, and community involvement in, 4-H programs throughout the country. Their partnership will help provide funding to 4-H in more than 900 communities across the nation, allowing youth to explore interests in everything from animal science to robotics."

4-H is a community of six million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills.

The National 4-H Council is the private sector, non-profit partner of 4-H National Headquarters located at the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) within USDA.
