Farmers Cooperative, has recently donated $2,500 to the Nebraska FFA Foundation to directly support local FFA programming needs. Fillmore Central was one of six FFA Chapters selected to earn a grant. The Fillmore Central Chapter has received $250 to be used for their community development.  
The Fillmore Central FFA will use the funds to continue their Toy and Hygiene Project. This is their third year to collect toys and hygiene products for two different charities. The hygiene products will be donated to “Stock Our Shelves” that is facilitated by the United Congregational Church in Geneva. The other half of the grant funds will be used for the Christmas Store charity where parents and children can shop for free for Christmas gifts for their family members.
“We are happy to donate to these programs. The Farmers Cooperative knows that these young people represent our future customers and employees, as well as our future community leaders. For these reasons, we believe that it important to support our local FFA chapters and the work that they do.” Our slogan is “Investing in Our Owners’ Success! And the Farmers Cooperative believes that investing in our agricultural youth today will insure our future success tomorrow. We are proud and happy to donate to the Nebraska FFA Foundation and support local FFA” says Ron Velder, Farmers Cooperative General Manager.
