The Herman Rescue Squad has received a $2500.00 donation from America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by Monsanto Fund and directed by a local Farmer Randy Rasmussen of Herman, Nebraska. The donation will help the Herman Rescue Squad to purchase a new AED machine to update our Squad to better serve our community and the people around it in the rural area we serve.

With this donation from Randy Rasmussen and others in our community we can update our equipment to better take care of the area we serve.

Again thank you to Randy Rasmussen and America’s Farmers Grow Communities for this donation.

For six years, America’s Farmers Grow Communities has collaborated with farmers to donate over $22 million to more than 8,000 community organizations across rural America. Winning farmers will direct donations to nonprofits to help fight rural hunger, purchase life saving fire and EMS equipment, support ag youth leadership programs, but much needed classroom resources, and so much more.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities partners with farmers to support local nonprofit causes that positively impact farming communities across rural America. Grow Communities is one program in the America’s Farmers community outreach effort, sponsored by the Monsanto fund. Other programs include America’s Farmers Grow Ag leaders,. Which encourages rural youth to remain in agriculture and provides $1,500 college scholarships to high school and college students pursuing ag-related degrees and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, which works with farmers to nominate rural school districts to compete for $10,000 and $25,000 math and science grants.
