WOODSBORO – Refugio County farmer Kenneth Steindorf has directed a $2,500 donation to the Woodsboro Fire Department.

Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will help purchase personal protective equipment for the firefighters, and will assist with equipment repairs and replacements.

Thanks to the support of farmers across the country, more than $3.2 million is being directed to non-profits in 1,289 counties in 39 states.

“Woodsboro is a small town and the department could utilize any donations to keep going,” said Steindorf, explaining why he wanted to support the department.

“We depend on the Woodsboro Fire Department to help protect our farm.”

America’s Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support non-profit organizations like the Woodsboro Fire Department, who are doing important work in their communities.

The program offers farmers the chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to the farmer’s non-profit of choice.

The search for funding to sustain and enhance programs is a year-round job for non-profit organizations across the country.

Through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, farmers have been able to support a variety of groups, such as schools, fire departments, community centers and youth organizations like 4-H and FFA.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities launched in 2010 and has since donated over $13 million to more than 5,200 non-profit organizations across the country.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, is part of the America’s Farmers initiative, which highlights and celebrates the important contributions of farmers like Kenneth Steindorf.
