Supporting Local FFA Chapters

FFA chapters from Gordon-Rushville High School, Hay Springs High School and Sioux County High School each received a $10,000 donation from WESTCO and the Land O’Lakes Foundation last week. 

The donation was made possible by the Land O’Lakes Foundation Coop Match Program. The Coop Match program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donations of member cooperatives to local nonprofit organizations, schools and cities, thus doubling the funds available for hometown projects.

Gordon-Rushville FFA will use the funds to install an irrigation system in the FFA’s nearly completed greenhouse. The plan is to grow hydroponic strawberries in the near future. Hay Springs will utilize the funds for project opportunities such as expansion of the goat production program, possible development and construction of additional livestock production facilities, a possible chapter garden and a possible apiarian program for honey production. The donation to Sioux County will be used to help purchase a new SawStop Industrial saw and accessories.

WESTCO CEO David Briggs said, “We are thankful to the Land O’Lakes Foundation for the opportunity to participate in their Member Co-op Match Program. Through this program we are able to support worthy organizations within our communities such as FFA, which helps grow our future leaders in agriculture.”
