Runnings gives back to 4-H by the bucketful
June 22, 2015
Runnings, a family-owned retailer of general merchandise and strong supporter of youth organizations, announced today the company is donating 14,428 5-gallon buckets to 4-H clubs across six states.
The buckets, dyed in signature 4-H green, will be given to youth preparing to participate in county fairs across Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Montana, New York and New Hampshire. The county fair season typically starts in June and runs through the end of August. Nutrena, Weaver Leather, Farnam and Vitalix are co-sponsoring the bucket program now in its second year. Last year, Runnings donated approximately 7,000 buckets.
"Runnings is a proud supporter of youth organizations like 4-H," said Dennis Reed, Runnings owner. "Growth and development of our young people is vital to our future. The more that we as community partners can positively support them, the better." 4-H actively involves more than 6 million youth across the country.
