Landus donates to local 4-H program

The 4-H program in Greene County was awarded $1,000 from the Jefferson Landus Cooperative location recently.  In July, Landus Cooperative awarded $20,000 as part of its annual donation to county 4-H programs in areas in which it does business.

“Landus Cooperative is proud to support 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.”

The farmer-owned cooperative announced the Core Grant program at the beginning of the year as part of a quarterly philanthropy focus. With this grant the Greene County program will be able to further develop the valuable learning experiences offered within 4-H.

“Corporately and locally, we appreciate the commitment to the youth of Greene county and the encouragement to enhance their knowledge and interest in agriculture through 4-H involvement,” said Alyssa Hemesath, communications specialist who oversees the donation process at Landus Cooperative.
