Farm Bureau donates to Sacred Heart

Dominic Hogan

     Because of its commitment to its local community and advocacy for rural issues, the Jones County Farm Bureau has been designated a 2019 Outstanding County Farm Bureau by Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF). In recognition, Jones County Farm Bureau President Dominic Hogan has earned the opportunity to provide a $2,500 donation to a local organization or charity and has selected Sacred Heart School of Monticello to receive this award.

     “I wanted to give to Sacred Heart School because this is the school all of our children attended, where they were given a faith-based education. During these times I want to support Sacred Heart’s fundraising efforts that allows students to afford a private education. Farmers care about the people in this community, and I’m thankful to be able to support the organizations that help make it a better place to live.”

     This year, Farm Bureaus across the state were able to help contribute more than one million meals for food insecure Iowans during the pandemic and assisted with acquiring personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. After the derecho swept across the state, farmer leaders also got to work to donate essential supplies to those without power and helped their communities with cleanup efforts.

     “This year has tested the resilience, adaptability and dedication of our Farm Bureau members who have continued to show up and demonstrate leadership during a time of need,” said Craig Hill, IFBF president. “It is a privilege to recognize this leadership and provide an additional opportunity for county Farm Bureau presidents to give back to their communities.”
