Redwood Valley FFA is pleased to announce that Corteva Agriscience/Pioneer Seed has donated $1000 to the local chapter as part of their company sponsorship program.
The Redwood Valley FFA chapter plans to use the funds to enhance education through the construction of a chicken coop. Once the project is complete, students will raise broilers (meat chickens) and layers (eggs). The students intend to donate the meat from the boilers to local families in need, and the eggs from the layers will be sold locally to provide additional funding to enhance student education.
Perry Estebo, local Pioneer Seed Territory Manager, was present to present the Community Betterment award to (left to right) Savannah Nordby, Aiden Koplin, and Taia Koplin (members of the local FFA chapter).
Corteva is pleased to make contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the company and employees. Consideration for outreach grants is given to communities where Corteva sales representatives, farmer dealers, employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.
