Farm & Home Helps FFA Through Red Brand Home Grown Program
Memphis Farm & Home manager Rayburn Snell presents a check to Memphis FFA members Keysha Orton, Sarah Sites, and Kylee Johnston and advisor Waltedda Blessing.
On October 4th Rayburn Snell of the Memphis Farm and Home Store presented a check for $333 to the Memphis FFA Chapter of Scotland County. The funds were the result of Farm & Home's participation in "Home Grown", an initiative developed by Red Brand that financially supports local FFA Chapters.
"The community support for Home Grown and our FFA chapter has been tremendous" said Snell. "The chapter always does what they can to raise funds, but this was a win-win for everyone. Just by purchasing fence, we were all partnering in the future of the students."
"We can't say thank you enough," said FFA chapter advisor Waltedda Blessing. "Red Brand has been supporting the FFA for over sixty years as a national sponsor. Now, through Home Grown, they're building on that by helping local dealers get involved with local chapters. We appreciate the folks at the Memphis Farm & Home and everyone in the community who purchased Red Brand fence. On behalf of the entire chapter, we truly appreciate it."
Home Grown was in effect from January 1st through December 31st and applied to all new orders of Red Brand field fence, sheep and goat fence, barbed wire, and horse fence, placed by Memphis Farm & Home. For every new order placed, $1.00 for every roll was donated to the Memphis FFA Chapter in Farm & Home's name.
