Over $111,000 raised for local ag education
PRAIRIE DU SAC, WI -- Every scoop of Fresh Frozen Custard mattered during Culver’s Scoops of Thanks Day fundraiser on May 3. Guests showed their support for agricultural education by stopping at Culver’s more than 650 restaurants and donating $1 in exchange for a single scoop of Fresh Frozen Custard. The fundraiser is part of Culver’s Thank You Farmers® Project and raised over $111,000.
“These young agricultural leaders are our future, and we are so thankful that our guests understand how important it is to support them and their education,” said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager for Culver’s. “A $1 donation may seem small, but when all that generosity adds up, we are able to make a positive difference for so many people across the country.”
The Thank You Farmers® Project supports agricultural education programs, like the National FFA Organization, that encourage smart farming practices in an effort to make sure we continue to have enough food to feed our country’s growing population.
Since 2013, the Thank You Farmers Project has raised over $1.7 million in support of the National FFA Organization, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations. To learn more about the program and how to get involved, visit culvers.com/thankyoufarmersproject.
