AgCarolina Farm Credit employees donate to Baptists on Mission Ukraine Crisis Relief
Employees have the option to participate in AgCarolina’s “A Cause a Quarter” program. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the Association. Participants can dress casually each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the second quarter of 2022 was Baptists on Mission Ukraine Crisis Relief. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $5,000. Representatives from Baptists on Mission state every dollar received will feed one person in the Ukraine for one day.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit’s employees have a heart for trying to make a positive difference where they can,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter is the product of an employee suggestion and has been a great way for the AgCarolina team to understand how we can make an impact in the communities we serve in eastern North Carolina. With the crisis unfolding in Ukraine, some employees reached out asking if our cause a quarter funds could make a difference across the world. We reached out to Baptists on Mission, a group we have partnered with on numerous projects, including hurricane relief and with farmers to families food donations. The Baptists on Mission have connections to individuals with boots on the ground in Ukraine. These funds will directly impact the lives of those living in the crisis areas. Up to five thousand Ukrainians will be fed from the funds donated by our employees.”
