Buy An FFA Emblem At Southern States And Help A Local Chapter

Richmond, Va. – The cashier at Southern States might ask you to part with an extra dollar this month. But don’t worry. It’s not inflation on the rise. It’s for a good cause.

Southern States is supporting the National FFA Organization by selling FFA emblems for $1. The campaign takes place February 24 – March 18, 2012.

“FFA is proud to step alongside Southern States in this campaign,” said Rob Cooper, executive director of the National FFA Foundation, the fundraising arm of the National FFA Organization. “Money raised will support FFA activities at the local and national level that promote premier leadership, personal growth and career success.”

Southern States is a supporter of FFA and is proud to be the sponsor of the “I’m Supporting FFA” fundraiser, said Thomas R. Scribner, president and CEO of Southern States. “Every dollar collected will benefit FFA members across the area. Southern States has a rich heritage of working with FFA and hopes the public will assist with the project by supporting the effort and contributing a dollar for a personalized paper FFA emblem.”

After you buy an emblem, you can sign your name on it or even the name of a child you care about. The emblems will then be displayed in the store for all to see. Proceeds are split between the local FFA chapter, the state FFA association and the National FFA Foundation.

To buy a paper emblem, visit a participating Southern States Cooperative near you.
