The DIY Junior 4-H Club will use the donation to fund community programs and projects including NUMANA hunger relief, Cards to American Military Service, Operation Christmas Child and 4-H camp scholarships. Members of the 4-H Club will have a say in which organizations receive funds. “The DIY Juniors are grateful for the generosity of Monsanto and the Fischer family for their willingness to give back to the community,” said Scott Fischer, 4-H club leader, in a news release. “The kids are excited about it because it gives us an opportunity to use that contribution towards some of these activities,” he added. 4-H is a youth development organization focused on making a positive impact in the community. America's Farmers Grow Communities works with farmers in support of nonprofit organizations such as the DIY Junior 4-H Club. The organization offers farmers a chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to a nonprofit. Farmers use the support of America's Farmers Grow Communities to assist groups such as schools, community centers, fire departments and youth organizations such as 4-H and FFA. Since its founding in 2010, America's Farmers Grown Communities has donated more than $13 million to over 5,200 nonprofit organizations across the country. Sponsored by the Monsanto fund, the organization is part of the America's Farmers Initiative, which highlights the importance of farmers.
