FFA Students Raise Over $ 17,000 To Help West River FFAers

 

The South Dakota FFA Foundation recently created a fund to help West River FFA students who either lost animals or their parents lost animals from the October Blizzard.  Foundation Executive Director Geri Eide says the South Dakota FFAers received contributions from FFA chapters in 8 other states that went into the fund.

Eide says the foundation is using a formula to get assistance out this week to the West River FFA members.

She says it took FFAers from the nine states only six weeks to raise the more than  $ 17,000 for the South Dakota FFA member SAE disaster fund.
