The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, recently made the safety of our youth a priority by sponsoring Farm Safety 4 Just Kids with a $14,000 grant.

Farm Safety 4 Just Kids raises awareness about health and safety hazards that are an inherent part of the rural environment in which children live, work, and play.

"The backbone of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is our chapters," says Dave Schweitz, executive director of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. "This generous donation from the Monsanto Fund will help us provide better education to more children and their families by expanding our chapter network."

Thanks to the support of agri-business sponsors like the Monsanto Fund, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is able to provide their chapter volunteers with up to date and pertinent safety education and demonstration resources.
