[Raleigh, NC] AgCarolina Farm Credit is proud to announce a $2,000 donation to Samaritan’s Purse.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the fourth quarter of 2017 was Samaritan’s Purse. Fifty-four employees participated in the campaign for a total of $1,350. AgCarolina Farm Credit management made the decision to donate $650 for the total $2,000 donation.
