The NEW Cooperative Foundation has again shown its commitment to supporting local 4-H programs by donating $43,545 to area 4-H groups. The money is donated for half of each youth 4-H member’s dues in NEW Cooperative trade area, which includes Greene, Webster, Calhoun, Carroll, Franklin, Sac, Pocahontas, Humboldt, Hamilton, Kossuth, Cherokee, Plymouth, Monona and Woodbury counties.
“NEW Cooperative takes great pride in supporting our area youth 4-H programs,” a spokesperson said. “We strongly feel that 4-H helps these youth build the foundation to become future leaders in our local communities. We are excited for them as they gain all of the valuable skills and knowledge the 4-H program offers.
