“Make the Best, Better” is a saying that will sound familiar to most, but for those that do not know that is the 4-H motto. 4-H provides young people an opportunity to learn by doing and to express their ideas and use their influence to drive positive outcomes. We know how important programs such as 4-H are to the communities we serve.
That is why we were proud to present the Kansas 4-H Foundation with a check for $10,000 to enhance the 4-H experience for Kansas youth through programs, events, and scholarship. This was a result of our stockholders and employees raising funds to lend 4-H a helping hand.
Our donation was then matched by CoBank through their Sharing Success program, which doubles the contributions of its customers to the charitable organizations and causes in their communities. Since 2012, CoBank and its customers have together contributed more than $56 million to groups such as volunteer fire departments, local school and hunger relief programs.
