Donation helps local Winona County 4-H (05/23/2012)
Local farmer directs $2,500 through America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM

With an estimated nine billion mouths to feed by 2050, the future of farming depends on America’s youth. Organizations like Winona County 4-H help turn these ag youth into community and industry leaders who will be able to meet the challenges of our growing population. Thanks to one local farmer and America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM, the Winona County 4-H can continue to help its members learn the proud tradition of American farming for the second year in a row.

Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. Troy and Alexis Klassen were the winning farmers in Winona County. The Klassens saw the financial need of his local 4-H club and chose to give back to the Winona County 4-H’ers.

Winona County 4-H will use the $2,500 to continue to improve the local 4-H clubs in the county.

In a ceremony held April 16 at Lewiston-Altura High School, the Klassens got the chance to present the Winona County 4-H with the $2,500 donation.

Through America’s Farmers Grow Communities:

Farmers in 1,245 eligible counties have the chance to win $2,500 for their favorite community nonprofit organizations.

The Monsanto Fund has invested more than $3.1 million to rural communities this year alone.

More than $175,000 in total has been donated to nonprofits in Minnesota.

A list of all winners and more information can be found at www.growcommunities.com

Grow Communities is part of a broad commitment by the Monsanto Fund to invest in farm communities such as Winona County. It aims to highlight the important contributions farmers such as the Klassens make every day to our society.
