Tipton County farmer Leslie Roane has directed a $2,500 donation to the Go Lucy Go Foundation.
Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will allow the organization to support the families of children who have been diagnosed with brain cancer.
The organization provides warm meals and a food pantry for families facing devastating circumstances. The organization was founded by the family of Lucy Hannah, a brave young girl who has overcome great odds after being diagnosed with Medulloblastoma.
“Lucy is an incredible fighter and has touched everyone in this community’s heart,” said Roane.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations like the Go Lucy Go Foundation, who are doing important work in their communities. The program offers farmers the chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to the farmer’s nonprofit of choice.
The search for funding to sustain and enhance programs is a year-round job for nonprofit organizations across the country. Through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, farmers have been able to support a variety of groups, such as schools, fire departments, community centers and youth organizations like 4-H and FFA.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities launched in 2010 and has since donated over $13 million to more than 5,200 nonprofit organizations across the country.
