The 4-H program in Story County was awarded $1,000 from the Maxwell Landus Cooperative location recently. In July, Landus Cooperative awarded $20,000 as part of its annual donation to county 4-H programs in areas in where it does business.
“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 Story County program will be able to further develop the valuable learning experiences offered within 4-H.
“Corporately and locally, we appreciate the commitment to the youth of Story County 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.
