The Marietta TSC will be participating in the national Paper Clover Campaign and the store is hosting our 4-H display at the front of their store. Stop by and support the campaign!

  • Paper Clover Runs Wednesday, October 5 through October 16.
  • Customers will be invited to add an additional donation at check-out or round-up.
  • As usual, counties will receive 80% of the funds. The funds will be used for camp and youth leadership experiences.

Since 2010, TSC’s annual Paper Clove fundraiser has helped raise more than $18 million for 4-H programs across the country, and more than $400,000 has been raised for Ohio 4-H in the past five years alone. One hundred percent of the proceeds from these fundraisers goes back to 4-H, with 90% of the donations going directly to supporting 4-H youth in the state where the paper clover was purchased and the remaining 10% supporting 4-H programming at the national level.

Car Wash Guidelines for Marietta & Belpre

Is your club or organization thinking about having a car wash to beat the summer heat and raise some funds?

Vehicle wash water often contains detergents, oil, grease, nutrients, and toxic metals. This has a potential to add additional nutrients and harmful chemicals to streams & rivers. Left untreated, the polluted discharges can not only affect the aquatic life in waterways, but could eventually affect drinking water supplies.

If you are planning a car wash please read this information (attached)
