The Viroqua FFA Chapter is raising money for two worthy causes. One cause is to help support the Viroqua FFA Chapter and the other is to support a family in their agricultural community who is dealing with the tragic loss of a loved one.
During this fall harvest season, farmers can donate a bushel or more of corn or soybeans to help send the Viroqua FFA Chapter's state winning Agriculture Mechanics Team and 12 other members to the National FFA Convention, Oct. 23-27 in Indianapolis.
The chapter is also raising money toward a college fund for Rick and Mary Sime's four young daughters. Rick was Seneca High School's agriculture education teacher. Tragically, he lost his fight with cancer on Aug. 28.
If willing to donate corn or soybeans from the fall crop harvest, the Viroqua FFA Chapter will arrange a time to pick it up at the farm or another location.
The FFA will also be taking donations at ADM in Viroqua and Asbury Grain in Viroqua where an account designated for the Viroqua FFA Chapter is already set-up.
When unloading the grain, let the elevator know of the donation wishes. The donation is tax deductible under IRS rules.
For more information or to have corn or soybeans picked up, contact Lloyd Hardy, Viroqua FFA Advisor at 608-606-1301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
