AgFirst donations will help those in crisis during COVID-19 outbreak
These are trying times for our community, nation and world. AgFirst Farm Credit Bank believes we must rally together to cope with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is threatening the health and well-being of many in our communities.
To help in this fight, AgFirst has donated $25,000 each to the American Red Cross and Harvest Hope Food Bank. We know these trusted organizations are on the front lines every day helping our neighbors in need. Together, we can make an impact for those struggling during this public health crisis.
“AgFirst’s mission is to empower our partners to support rural communities and American agriculture. Helping people grow and thrive is written in our DNA,” CEO Tim Amerson said. “We believe in offering support to our communities during good times and bad, and we recognize that this is especially important during crisis moments like the one we are experiencing now.”
In addition to boosting our community support, AgFirst is doing its part to promote the well-being of our friends and neighbors and help curb the spread of the virus by encouraging our employees to practice social distancing. We share a hope that this pandemic will be controlled quickly and with the least amount of impact possible.
