Julie McDaniel of Texhoma has been selected as a winner in America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.
Grow Communities gives farmers the opportunity to win a $2,500 donation to direct to their favorite local nonprofit organizations.
To further support counties that have been declared disaster areas due to drought by the USDA, winning farmers in these counties were able to direct double the donation, a total of $5,000, to further support the community.
Texas County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving McDaniel the opportunity to place two $2,500 donations. McDaniel opted to direct both donations to Northridge Christian School.
In 1,271 eligible counties in 39 states, farmers could sign up for the opportunity to win a $2,500 donation for their favorite community nonprofit.
This year, the Monsanto Fund will invest over $5 million in rural America through Grow Communities
