The Denham Springs Tractor Supply Company store was recognized for winning the “Class Champion” award for meeting the company’s goals during the 4-H/TSC Paper Clover promotion for Spring.

Store employees at the Denham Springs TSC store raised at least a 20 percent transaction percentage, raised a minimum of $300 for Paper Clover donations and received a ribbon from 4-H for their 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 $787,000, which supports 4-H on the local, state and national levels. During the 12-day promotion, the Denham Springs TSC raised $412 for 4-H in Livingston Parish.

The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and it has granted scholarships to events that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to shooting sports. In Livingston Parish, the Paper Clover funds support local activities such as project training days, contests and workshops for the youth.
