Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice. This year the selected drought stricken communities received double funding for a total of $5,000. The Rauches also gifted $2,500 to the Marysville Food Pantry. Memorial Hospital will use the funding in support of its Emergency Room, as it is a service used by people of all ages, occupations, and backgrounds.
Keith and Debbie Rausch, along with representatives from Monsanto, recently presented Chip Hubbs, President/CEO of Memorial with the check. From left: Tony Mayer of Channel Seedsman; Chris Holt of Channel/DSM/Monsanto Fund; Debbie and Keith Rausch; and Chip Hubbs, President/CEO of Memorial Hospital.
