The local Tractor Supply Company stores support students’ fight against hunger in the community
Bellefontaine, OH September 25, 2010 – February 25, 2011 — The Benjamin Logan FFA chapter recently worked with the local TSC store in (Bellefontaine, Ohio) to collect canned food for local charity. This collection took place in front of TSC where there were buckets to collect the items. This program started on November 10, 2010 and ran through February 25, 2011. Donators’ could bring in canned food items whenever they wanted to.
What is Harvest for America? According to the TSC website “choosing to harvest today for a better tomorrow.” It helps the less fortunate in need by collecting canned food items to less fortunate families in need.
The Committee Chair, Katelyne Ackley says: “I think this (Harvest for America) is a way to communicate to the public and make the public aware of what is going on through our community. Just spreading the word about a need in the community, people are willing to help out those who are less fortunate in our community. Overall this is something to get our school and community both involved.”
The Benjamin Logan FFA would like to thank large contributors such as: The Benjamin Logan BPA and The Benjamin Logan FCCLA for the amount of canned food items collected. The Benjamin Logan FFA would also like to thank TSC of Bellefontaine for allowing the chapter to work in front of the store passing out flyers, and supplying the posters and supplies needed to make Harvest for America a success. Without the involvement of the Benjamin Logan students as well as the community for donating canned food items, the Benjamin Logan FFA “Harvest for America” project would not have been nearly as successful.
“The Benjamin Logan FFA chapter is committed to bettering its community through service learning opportunities that help to develop the leadership, personal growth and career success of its members. For more information visit the Benjamin Logan FFA website.
