Farm Credit Associations of NC donate through Pull for Youth
RALEIGH, NC – AgCarolina Farm Credit, Cape Fear Farm Credit, and Carolina Farm Credit are proud to announce the fundraising results of the fourth annual Pull for Youth sporting clays events to benefit NC 4-H and FFA. Over $400,000 has been donated directly to NC 4-H and FFA since 2017.
A total donation of $100,000 was split evenly between North Carolina 4-H and FFA from the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina. Funds were raised in conjunction with the three Pull for Youth sporting clays events held across North Carolina during the fall of 2020.
“The Pull for Youth sporting clays shoots across our state have been an overwhelming success,” said the three Association CEOs in a joint statement. “The response by those who have participated, volunteered, and donated to the cause over the last three years are a clear indicator agriculture will remain the leading industry in our state. By providing funds to NC 4-H and FFA, the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina and our Pull for Youth sponsors are working together to make sure tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture have a bright future. We are thankful for all of those who played a part in the success of Pull for Youth and we look forward to another great year in 2021.”
