Tractor Supply Co. stores in Delaware will collect donations during National FFA Week to support grants for Future Farmers of America chapters in their community.
Coinciding with National FFA Week — Feb. 17-24 — Tractor Supply customers can donate $1 or more at checkout Feb. 16-25 while shopping in-store, at tractorsupply.com or by calling 877-718-6750. Donations will fund the national Grants for Growing program, supporting FFA chapters in Delaware. The program is coordinated through a partnership with the National FFA Foundation and Tractor Supply.
Earlier this year, FFA chapters submitted applications detailing how they will start or expand on a project that will benefit their communities and current and future FFA students. Funds were requested to purchase vegetation, trees, seed, chickens, feed, mulch and tools for projects ranging from greenhouses to aquaculture labs.
Grants, awarded to winning FFA chapter initiatives in the spring, have a minimum value of $500 and a maximum value of $5,000. Donations remain within the state in which they were raised.
