Urbandale, Iowa, (AgPR), January 18, 2011 – CHS generously supports the non-profit organization Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. The CHS Foundation is the major giving entity of CHS, an energy, grains and foods company with a stewardship focus of building vibrant communities. As a silver sponsor, the CHS Foundation donated between $10,000 and $24,999.
“Farm Safety 4 Just Kids relies on the funding from agri-businesses like the CHS Foundation to develop safety resources, in addition to sustaining the grassroots volunteer program,” said David Schweitz, executive director. “Our chapters have delivered more than 1,000 safety events to 86,000 youth and their families thanks to the generous donations from companies like the CHS Foundation.”
Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son. The organization works to raise awareness about the health and safety hazards that are an inherent part of the rural environment in which children live, work, and play. Over 130 chapters in the United States and Canda conduct safety and health programs within their communities.
Thanks to the support of agri-business sponsors like the CHS Foundation, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is able to provide their volunteers with up to date and pertinent safety education and demonstration resources.
