JOANN Fabrics

In March and April, visit your local JOANN store and donate at the register!

JOANN Stores and 4-H

JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores stores and New York State 4-H are creating #Opportunity4All kids to create, make and learn through hands-on experiences. You can help inspire a child’s creativity by donating $1 or $4 at checkout when you visit JOANN in-store or online now through April 30.

4-H and JOANN stores want to see more kids learning by doing, creating and making. Thousands of local 4-H members, staff, volunteers, and supporters will join with JOANN customers to ensure more kids get that chance through a new Clover for Kids campaign to bring hands-on 4-H programs.

Studies show that many students lose their natural love of learning somewhere between kindergarten and their senior year of high school. When more youth have access to local 4-H programming, they will participate in hands-on projects where they can design, create and make for themselves. These experiences are proven to rekindle a love of learning and produce a variety of benefits – from strengthening their creativity and imaginative thinking to improving their motor skills, coordination, and self-esteem.

With the $4 Paper Clover, customers will also receive a coupon for $4 off their next purchase. To learn more about the national partnership, visit www.4-h.org/JOANN.
