Donation Benefits Two Area Groups

The Adair County Elementary-Brashear Playground Fund and the Early Childhood Learning Center can continue being an asset to the community, thanks to the support of local farmer, Vicki Collop, and America’s Farmers Grow Communities.

Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice. To further support counties declared natural disaster areas by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) due to the drought this year, winning farmers in these counties are able to direct double donations, a total of $5,000.

Adair County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Collop the opportunity to choose two organizations to receive $2,500 donations. Collop selected the Adair County Elementary School-Brashear Playground Fund and the Early Childhood Learning Center.
