Runnings, located at 5949 Rome-Taberg Road, has announced that the company will donate over 13,300 5-gallon buckets to 4-H chapters in seven states. The buckets, dyed in signature 4-H green, will be given to youth who are involved in their local county fair.
“Growth and development of young people is vital to our future,” Runnings Chief Executive Officer and Owner Dennis Reed said. “These buckets being donated are just one of the many ways we try and support youth-oriented organizations each year.”
Originally started in 2015, Runnings 4-H themed buckets have consistently grown in popularity as more coordinators become aware of the program. Runnings Store Managers work with local chapters to distribute the buckets to kids in each region prior to the start of the local fair season.
4-H actively involves more than 6 million youth across the United States.
