FFA raises $17,630 to help storm-affected members
The South Dakota FFA Foundation has created a fund to split among FFA members that experienced livestock losses in an October blizzard.
In six weeks, individuals, chapters and foundations from nine states raised $17,630.06.
“It won’t come close to replacing the losses, but knowing others are thinking of them and feeling their pain goes a long way,” said Craig Shryock, Wessington Springs FFA adviser.
Members from South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, West Virginia, Kentucky, Colorado and Montana held fundraisers and sent donations to help South Dakota FFA members.
