Heartland Co-op was recently recognized in the Iowa FFA Foundation e-newsletter for being a stand-out sponsor. For years, Heartland Co-op has supported the foundation to help promote growth and learning for future farmers. Read on for the full article:
"With more than 5,800 members and 71 locations, Heartland Co-op has an impact in the agricultural spectrum in communities across Iowa. That statewide representation is an important component of Heartland Co-op, just as it is for the Iowa FFA Foundation.
This shared goal for supporting as many members of the ag community as possible has helped establish a mutually beneficial, lasting partnership between the Heartland Co-op and the Iowa FFA Foundation. Perhaps the cooperative's most significant contribution is the scholarship program. Every year, Heartland Co-op contributes nearly $10,000 for college scholarships.
Heartland Co-op has also been an integral catalyst in the success of the annual Black Ties, Blue Jackets Gala and the annual Foundation Golf Tournament. The cooperative has also shown a dedication to student development and education as the supporter of the Grain Production- Placement proficiency and the Food Science and Technology Career Development Event.
The Iowa FFA Foundation would like to say thank you to Heartland Co-op for the continued support of the Foundation, agricultural education and skills development programs."
