Friends of Winters FFA
Friends of Winters FFA will be participating in the 2020 Giving Tuesday virtual fundraiser on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
In an era of global crisis and disconnection, we need new rituals to connect us. As the world’s largest giving movement, we believe we can go further, faster. Friends of Winters FFA encourages the community to donate towards the Winters FFA program.
The Friends of Winters FFA represents a wide range of parent’s, alumni and community members. Their group comes together with one goal in mind; ensuring the students of Winters FFA have the tools they need to succeed.
The group works closely with the FFA advisors to:
- Purchase equipment for both in and outside the classroom.
- Fund contest fees and travel expenses.
- Cover costs of leadership conferences.
- Provide scholarships for students to attend state convention.
Award students who have worked to gain their state FFA degree, with senior scholarships.
As a non-profit organization they rely completely on the generous support of our community. Every year in November they hold the Wild West Dinner Dance to help fund Winters students throughout the year. This year they are unable to host the annual fundraiser.
They believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds. More importantly Winters Friends of FFA believe in the future of our FFA students, and that the lessons they learn in and outside of the ag classroom will help build a foundation for them to succeed in the future.
Winters Friends of FFA encourage the community to visit their website www.friendsofwintersffa.com/giving-tuesday or to mail a check to Friends of Winters FFA, PO Box 369, Winters, CA 95694.
All donations are tax-deductible.
