RALEIGH, NC – AgCarolina Farm Credit, Cape Fear Farm Credit, and Carolina Farm Credit are proud to announce the fundraising results of the second annual Pull for Youth Charity Sporting Clays events benefitting NC 4-H and FFA. A total of over $200,000 has been donated directly to NC 4-H and FFA over the past two years.
This year, a donation of $105,000 will be split evenly between North Carolina 4-H and FFA from the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina. Funds were raised in conjunction with the three Pull for Youth sporting clays events held across North Carolina with 250 shooting participants and 150 volunteers.
Over 125 businesses and organizations contributed to the pool of funds, including statewide $5,000 sponsors – American Forest Management, and the three Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina.
“The Pull for Youth sporting clays shoots across our state have been an overwhelming success,” said the three Association CEOs in a joint statement. “The response by those who have participated, volunteered, and donated to the cause over the last two years are a clear indicator that agriculture will remain the leading industry in our state. By providing funds to NC 4-H and FFA, the Farm Credit Associations of North Carolina and our Pull for Youth sponsors are working together to make sure tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture have a bright future. We are thankful for all of those who played a part in the success of Pull for Youth and we look forward to another great year in 2019.”
