“The City of Keithsburg is in need of a playground for the children,” said Sheriff. “The city has been trying to make improvements to keep kids out of trouble.”
America’s Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations like the Maple Park Family Fund, who are doing important work in their communities. The program offers farmers the chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to the farmer’s nonprofit of choice. The search for funding to sustain and enhance programs is a year-round job for nonprofit organizations across the country. Through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, farmers have been able to support a variety of groups, such as schools, fire departments, community centers and youth organizations like 4-H and FFA.
