Redline Equipment invests $8,150 in Ohio FFA members

Redline Equipment donated $8,150 to the Ohio FFA Foundation. The money will go to fund scholarships for 24 Ohio FFA members in the counties Redline Equipment serves, to attend the Washington Leadership Conference and Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum.

“The redliners are extremely proud to be able to pay it forward. Most of our customers and many of our staff are former FFA members,” said Heather Hetterick, Director of Marketing Communication at Redline Equipment. “This is not a donation. We consider this an investment in youth in our communities to ensure they have opportunities for personal growth and leadership development.”

The money was raised through Redline Equipment’s annual Parts Days sale. When customers purchased a $1,000 or more in parts, the dealership committed to donating $50 to FFA.

“We are very thankful for Redline Equipment and their customers,” said Jessica Parrish, Executive Director of the Ohio FFA Foundation. “This money will help provide transformational experiences for students that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to attend life-changing leadership conferences.”

One of Redline Equipment’s core value’s is to be a supporter of agriculture youth development to ensure the communities they do business in continue to thrive.

“We’re grateful for the support of our customers in this endeavor and have no doubt we’ll both see a return on our investment,” Hetterick said.
