Alabama Farm Credit Donates $5,000 to Support 4-H Programs
CULLMAN, Alabama — Alabama Farm Credit recently donated $5,000 to the Alabama 4-H Foundation in support of youth programs throughout the state. The annual donation will help fund camps, leadership training and scholarships for 4-H members in the coming year.
At the same time, Alabama Ag Credit also awarded $5,000 to the 4-H Foundation, doubling Farm Credit’s support for 4-H programs in the state.
