Farm Credit of Western Arkansas donated $1,995 to both the Arkansas FFA Foundation and the Arkansas 4-H Foundation in October. Farm Credit pledged the donations in conjunction with the association’s annual director election. The donation totaled $3,990, and was split evenly between the two organizations.
“These donations further demonstrate Farm Credit’s commitment to Arkansas youth and these valuable organizations,” President and CEO Glen Manchester said.
“Arkansas is fortunate to have strong 4-H and FFA programs that offer important learning opportunities,” said Randy Arnold, board chair for Farm Credit of Western Arkansas. “FFA and 4-H are helping shape Arkansas youth, who are tomorrow’s leaders.”
“These donations are just one more way that Farm Credit of Western Arkansas is proud to support Arkansas FFA and 4-H,” Manchester concluded.
