Sammy and Amala Morton of Manchester have been selected as a winner in America’s Farmers Grow Communities, which gives farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. The donations are available through the Monsanto Fund. The Morton’s have designated Coffee County FFA to receive the award. They will give the FFA the money at a ceremony tonight at Coffee County High School.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities is part of a broad commitment by the Monsanto Fund to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to our society by helping them grow their local communities. Nearly 60,000 farmers participated in the second annual Grow Communities program, which is designed to benefit nonprofit groups such as Ag youth, schools and other civic organizations.
