Landus Cooperative Contributes $22,000 to County 4-H Programs

County 4-H programs receive $1,000 to help off-set costs and enhance youth programs

AMES, Iowa (August 7, 2018) – Landus Cooperative awarded $22,000 as part of their quarterly Core Grant program. Twenty-two county 4-H programs across Iowa received $1,000 each from the cooperative.

“As a cooperative, we are proud to support our community through the 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.”

With this contribution, county programs will be able to further develop the valuable learning experiences offered within 4-H. Nearly 85% of the counties in which the cooperative does business participated in the Core Grant program.

“Landus Cooperative values the experiences these county 4-H programs provide and appreciates their continued effort to provide affordable, quality and positive youth development in these rural communities,” said Alyssa Hemesath, communications specialist who oversees the donation process at Landus Cooperative.
