FERNDALE, Ark. — Arkansas 4-H is hoping you’ll help the educational program on the
most green-intensive day of the year: St. Patrick’s Day.
“We were thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and its association with the color green
and thought, what better day than March 17 to give people an opportunity to help out
Arkansas 4-H?” said John Thomas, development officer for the Arkansas 4-H Foundation.
“This is the first of what will be an annual fund drive event for Arkansas 4-H.”
Thomas said there are several ways to help out. First is a one-day online fund drive
set for March 17.
Giving is easy. Just click the “donate” button in the top right of the foundation
A second method involves specific Chick-fil-A stores in Hot Springs, Searcy and Fayetteville.
Customers must mention 4-H when they order, either online or in-person.
HOT SPRINGS, 100 Cornerstone Boulevard — Customers who mention 4-H between 5 p.m.
and 8 p.m., can ensure that 10 percent of net sales over $4,500 will go to 4-H.
SEARCY, 3683 E. Race Street — 20 percent of all orders through the mobile app that
mention 4-H will go to the organization. Promotion does not apply to drive up ordering.
FAYETTEVILLE, 1369 W, M.L.K. Jr. Boulevard at Razorback Road — 20 percent of net sales
when customers mention 4-H will go to the organization. This promotion includes all
styles of ordering, including drive-through, mobile app and catering. Valid only between
8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
All money raised supports Arkansas 4-H youth scholarships and program/trip sponsorships,
removing financial barriers so that Arkansas youth can experience the unmatched outcomes
of Arkansas 4-H.
