Land O'Lakes continued its financial contribution to the non-profit organization Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. The farmer-owned cooperative is best known for its dairy-based food products.
"Land O'Lakes donation allows us to make a difference in the lives of rural children," said Dave Schweitz, executive director of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. "And it really exemplifies their commitment to the importance of teaching farm safety to our youth."
Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son.
The organization works to raise awareness about the health and safety hazards that are an inherent part of the rural environment in which children live, work, and play.
Nine outreach coordinators and members from more than 120 chapters in the United States and Canada conduct safety and health programs within their communities.
Thanks to the support of agri-business sponsors like Land O'Lakes, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is able to provide their volunteers with up to date and pertinent safety education and demonstration resources.
