Stripes Convenience Stores support 4-H clubs
COLLEGE STATION -- The Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation and Stripes Convenience Stores will begin the fourth year of their 4-H fund-raising alliance in conjunction with Stripes Store locations in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, said a Texas 4-H official.
This year’s fund-raising effort, known as “Helping Today’s Kids Become Tomorrow’s Leaders,” will run from Monday, Sept. 2, through Sunday, Sept. 15, according to Jana Barrett, Texas 4-H Foundation development relations coordinator at College Station.
Stripes Stores customers may participate by stopping in at one of its stores and buying a 4-H clover cutout for one dollar. Those who purchase a clover receive a coupon for a free 12 oz. Slush Monkey and receive special buy-one-get-one-free pricing on a Monkey Loco Candy.
“Funds are used to benefit 4-H locally in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico counties where the stores are located,” Barrett said. “These funds have been used to help counties with their leadership training efforts, help youth attend leadership camps and present workshops, purchase needed equipment, pay registration expenses for 4-H contest participation, and support various 4-H programs and activities.”
During this year’s fundraising campaign, representatives from 4-H will continue their popular Facebook contest. Photos will be submitted to the Texas 4-H Foundation and posted on the Texas 4-H Friends & Alumni Facebook page where they can vote for their favorite picture. The county with the picture getting the most Facebook likes will receive an additional donation sponsored by the Alumni Association.
For more information about the fund-raising effort, contact Barrett at 979-845-1213 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A list of participating Stripes Stores can be found at http://www.texas4hfoundation.org under the Stripes Stores Alliance tab.
