Local farmer Lisa Logan has directed a $2,500 donation to Youth Leadership Palm Beach County. Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will help the group support their youth leadership program.
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.
“Youth Leadership Palm Beach County is very excited to be this year’s recipient of Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities grant,” said Eric Hopkins, program chairman. “As a result of this gracious donation, two lucky students will each be awarded a $1,250 scholarship for college. We are extremely appreciative of Monsanto and their strong belief in charitable giving. We hope that by exposing our students to the spirit of giving, we are creating future generations of charitable citizens.”
