Landus Cooperative Donates $20,000 to County 4-H Programs Across Territory

County 4-H programs receive a $1,000 Core Grant from Landus Cooperative

AMES, Iowa (August 8, 2017) –Landus Cooperative recently awarded $20,000 as part of annual donations to county 4-H programs in areas where they do business. Twenty county programs were each granted $1,000.

“Landus Cooperative is proud to support county 4-H programs,” said Milan Kucerak, CEO of Landus Cooperative. “Many of our farmer-members, employees and their families are involved in 4-H. Those programs play an important role in our rural communities because they focus on rural youth development and agricultural advancement.”

The farmer-owned cooperative announced the Core Grant program at the beginning of the year as part of a quarterly philanthropy focus. With this grant the county program will be able to further develop the valuable learning experiences offered within 4-H.

“Corporately and locally, we appreciate the commitment to youth and the encouragement to enhance their knowledge and interest in agriculture through 4-H involvement,” said Alyssa Hemesath, communications specialist who oversees the donation process at Landus Cooperative.
