Dean supports Artesian Volunteer Fire Dept. through America’s Farmers Grow Communities

SD_Sanborn_Photo ARTESIAN – Local farmer Marion Dean has directed a $2,500 donation to the Artesian Volunteer Fire Department. Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will help the department install a new heater in the fire hall where trucks and equipment are housed.
Thanks to the support of farmers across the country, more than $3.2 million is being directed to nonprofits in 1,289 counties in 39 states.
“The Artesian Volunteer Fire Department does so much for our community,” said Dean. “I am happy to support them in their efforts to keep our community safe.”
America’s Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations like the Artesian Volunteer 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 nonprofit of choice.
The search for funding to sustain and enhance programs is a year-round job for nonprofit 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 $16 million to more than 6,500 nonprofit 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 Marion Dean.
