Urbandale, Iowa (AgPR), August 16, 2011 – Monsanto generously supports the non-profit organization Farm Safety 4 Just Kids [FS4JK]. Monsanto works alongside farmers to feed the world by selling seeds, traits developed through biotechnology, and crop protection chemicals.
“Monsanto has been a supporter of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids for many years,” said David Schweitz, executive director of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. “Their dedication to farm safety exemplifies their commitment to their customers and the entire agriculture industry.”
Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son in a gravity flow grain wagon accident. The organization works to raise awareness about the health and safety hazards that are an inherent part of the rural environment in which children live, work, and play. Nine outreach coordinators and over 120 chapters in the United States and Canada conduct safety and health programs within their communities.
Thanks to the support of agri-business sponsors like Monsanto Farm Safety 4 Just Kids is able to provide their volunteers with up to date and pertinent safety education and demonstration resources.
