Colusa County Farm Bureau Donates More than $8,000 to Youth Causes 

Continuing its tradition of donating to youth causes, the Colusa County Farm Bureau Board of Directors voted to donate over $8,000 to such causes at its January board meeting. “We were fortunate to have raised money for such causes this past year, and the board voted to give back to the young men and women of our community, at our board meeting,” said Rob Faris, Colusa County Farm Bureau, president.

The board voted to donate $3,000 to local youth scholarships, $1,000 each to Colusa and Arbuckle FFA groups for the help those groups gave at Farm Bureau events. The Farm Bureau will also donate an FFA jacket to each FFA group in the county for the advisor to give to a needy FFA student. They donated $500 to the Pierce High School Horticulture Club, $1,000 to the Field Day at Pierce High School, $300 to Clean Barns & Ag Mechanics at the Colusa County Fair. Western Days and the Fair Foundation will each receive $500 gifts and $100 for Colusa High School Grad Nite.

“We appreciate our youth and wish to help them as much as we can. The Farm Bureau has had fundraising events, and the community was very generous in their support, which allows us to be generous to the young people,” Faris said. “We want these young people to be successful, because some day they will be running this organization and be influential members of our community,”

Faris also stated. The Colusa County Farm Bureau is an organization of farmers and ranchers working to protect farm, ranch and rural families on behalf of nearly 700 members county-wide and is part of the California Farm Bureau Federation—the state’s largest organization of farmers and ranchers.
