The 2012 Illinois Foundation FFA collection drive is underway. The Illinois Foundation FFA provides an avenue for businesses and interested individuals to provide financial support for the Illinois Association FFA and to help encourage agricultural education students to do their best by recognizing them for their accomplishments in agriculture and personal development. More than 3,500 FFA members benefit each year from incentive awards provided by the Illinois Foundation FFA.
Helping with the local collection drive is Josh Lewis, Bureau Valley FFA president. Businesses and individuals have been contacted concerning support for the Illinois Foundation FFA. Anyone wishing to support the Foundation or wanting more information should contact Willard Mott at Bureau Valley High School by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations are being collected now through Saturday. Please submit donations made payable to: Illinois Foundation FFA, 9154-2125 North Ave. Manlius, IL 61338.
