Emily Schaff and Ryan Steinbeisser of Sidney FFA finish off the shed with program signs.

Savage FFA completed and delivered a new recycle shed for Richland County. It is located at IGA parking lot in Sidney. It replaces an older shed with issues. Richland Opportunity Inc. selected this site for its heavy use and a high traffic area of the county. The funds for this project were made possible through a National FFA Learning to Serve Rural Youth Development Grant. The grant is financed by the USDA-National Institute (NIFA) for support of service-learning projects across the nation. Sidney FFA was one of 58 chapters across 15 states to receive this grant for the 3rd year. The grant term has exceeded $10,000. Sidney FFA (having made two sheds last year) subcontracted the construction to Savage and Lambert FFA chapters. Lambert FFA will be completing their shed this June. FFA chapters, ROI, City of Sidney and Richland County continues to promote recycling, reusing, and reducing events and practices by all citizens, businesses and institutions. Our land fill issues are being compounded, stretched and increasingly expensive.

Savage FFA advisor Shane Stender and community supporter, Gary Miller, delivers the shed to IGA parking lot.
