Farm Credit Donates to 4-H Youth
Three Farm Credit organizations, Farm Credit Services of Mandan, Farm Credit Services of ND in Minot, and Ag Country Farm Credit Services in Fargo presented a check for $25,000 to North Dakota 4H Foundation Development Directors, Mylie Lavold and Duane Hauck.
“We are proud to support annual 4-H programs throughout our territory every year, but this special request to help provide youth with a quality educational experience at their 4-H camp was well deserving of additional funding,” said Claude Sem, CEO, Farm Credit Services of North Dakota.
The North Dakota 4-H Foundation is undertaking a $1.9 million capital campaign, “Shape a New Destiny”, to raise funds to renovate and expand the facilities at Western 4-H Camp near Washburn, ND. This camp is the only 4-H owned camp in North Dakota and provides a 4-H camping opportunity to all youth (4-H membership is not a requirement). Improvements are needed at the camp to provide a safer, higher quality camping experience and to continue to have a positive impact on the social, personal and educational growth of North Dakota’s youth.
