It's 4-H Days at TSC Stores across Ontario! From August 14 to 24, you can give at the till at any TSC Store across the province in support of 4-H Ontario! With each donation made, you will be able to sign your name on a clover and have it displayed in the store during 4-H Days. On the final day of 4-H Days, August 24, some 4-H Associations will also be hosting a BBQ at their local TSC Store. 

So, call up your friends and family and share how they can support the 4-H'ers in their lives through 4-H Days! Find out more about this exciting fundraising initiative here>
