2020 Fall Tractor Supply Clover Campaign

The TSC Paper Clover Campaign is happening now and runs through October 18! Be sure to drop by (or login) and show your support of 4-H programming! Donations made to 4-H through TSC stay right here in Ohio, with 80% of the funds staying right here in Licking County! The other 20% stay in Ohio, and assist in providing resources and support to programming here in Licking County… So it’s all helping youth and their families in Licking County!

Please Help Support 4-H Camp Ohio!

The 4-H Camp Ohio Buckeye Funder campaign will end on Thursday, June 18th. At the time of posting this update, 58% of our goal of $20,000 has been raised to support 4-H Camp Ohio through these unprecedented events. If you have not had the chance to do so, please visit go.osu.edu/CampOhio to help ensure camp will be able to welcome campers back in years to come. While the campaign ends on June 18th, donations to camp are welcome at anytime by sending funds directly to 4-H Camp Ohio.

Also, if you haven’t watched the video of camp counselors speaking about what camp means to them, I would encourage you to do so. Several of our camp counselors spoke about what camp means to them and you will see several photos from Licking County 4-H camps in the video.

LAST CHANCE! Licking County 4-H Club Shirt Orders are Due June 1st!

ORDERS ARE DUE BY JUNE 1ST! All information is listed below.

The Licking County 4-H Program is offering a Club Shirt in 2020, and we hope that your club might consider ordering!

The shirts will cost $10 each, with $3 from each shirt being donated to the Food Pantry Network of Licking County!

Here’s why we think you might be interested:

  • Opportunity to support the Food Pantry Network of Licking County
  • Ability to show your 4-H Spirit throughout the community
  • Convenience of being able to use this as your “Club Shirt” for this year
  • Members may be missing that 4-H Camp shirt, and want this shirt – while they wait for fall programming

Here are a few more important details:

CLUB NAME: #InThisTogetherOhio logo will appear on the back of shirt, in large size. If a club has at least ten shirts ordered by individuals connected to their club, the club’s name will be screen printed on the front left chest area of those shirts. If there are fewer than ten shirts ordered from a club, their club name will not be listed on the front of shirts – only the back logo will be screen printed. …Note: While you are welcome to make this your Club Shirt for this year, please know that you continue to be welcome to do a separate Club Shirt of your choosing – this is simply an option!

WHO CAN ORDER: Anyone can order! Advisors, members, parents, supporters! Anyone! Just make sure that you list your club, if you want to be included in your club’s screen print! If community members are interested in a shirt, but are not connected to any one 4-H Club, they are welcome to list “none” on the Club Name line of the order form.

WHEN CAN WE ORDER: Orders will be accepted until June 1st.

HOW DO WE ORDER: The order form can be found here.

WHEN WILL THEY BE DISTRIBUTED: We’ve listed the distribution as getting underway on July 1st. Well before then, we should know what the social distancing guidelines are, and how to work within those guidelines to facilitate distribution of orders. We may group club orders and drop to a club advisor, we may need to do a drive-thru pick-up, etc. Due to expense, shirts will not be mailed. It’s really hard to say details at this moment, but everyone will get their shirts in early July!

COMMUNITY SUPPORT: We’re thankful that we are able to support the Food Pantry Network of Licking County with this effort, and they are appreciative of this effort. We know that many within our community are relaying on the FPN for support and assistance right now, and surely some of our 4-H families are also among those who benefit… Once the shirt deadline arrives on June 1st, we’ll be happy to announce the total amount to be donated.

ADDITIONAL DONATION: If your club (or a family within the club) would like to make an additional contribution, simply send a separate check made payable to the 4-H Committee (note FPN Donation in the memo). We will make sure that your donation is presented to the FPN in early June as a part of the 4-H program’s support.
