FERNDALE, Ark.  —  When you see March 17’s clovers come out, that’s a cue to think about supporting the Arkansas 4-H youth development program, said John Thomas, managing director for the Arkansas 4-H Foundation.

Every donation on March 17 up to $10,000 will be doubled with a match from Arkansas Farm Bureau! We are so grateful for our AR Farm Bureau friends for their generous partnership.

“It’s kind of a natural connection for us, since the four-leaf clover is our symbol,” Thomas said. “We hope that the holiday will also be a reminder to support a program that helps hundreds of thousands of Arkansas youth every year who develop strong leadership and citizenship skills and will provide a ready and innovative workforce for our state."
