Local farmer directs funds to Hannah Center
For the Rapids City Times
WOOD COUNTY – Wood County farmer Julianne Gerlach has directed $2,500 to The Hannah Center through America’s Farmers Grow Communities and the Bayer Fund. As part of their mission the organization will use the funds to continue to provide fresh, healthy meals for all the women and children at The Hannah Center.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities partners with farmers to support nonprofit organizations. The program offers farmers the chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit of their choice. It has awarded more than $33 million to over 8,000 nonprofits across rural America.
“A better life is Bayer’s goal. Farmers are invested in their communities, they root for their neighbors, and they know when and where there is a need,” said Al Mitchell, vice president corporate engagement for Bayer. “Farmers are one of America’s best resources, which is why Grow Communities partners with them to direct donations to the organizations they are passionate about and that make a positive impact and a better life in communities.”
