Without community, we would not be here today.

If supporting local non-profit organizations is something that is important to you, 2020 will be a great year for you to seek extra funding Farm and Home Supply will celebrate their 60th year in business with a campaign to help support the communities they serve.

Farm and Home is a local, family owned and run retail business proudly serving communities throughout Illinois, Iowa and Missouri since 1960. To celebrate their 60th year in business and to say ‘Thank You’ to all their customers, Farm and Home is looking to donate in excess of $120,000 to local non-profit charities in the twelve communities they serve.

Adam Bowles, President of Farm and Home, said, “I am the third generation in my family to have been associated with Farm and Home Supply and have seen so much growth and change in these communities. The one thing that has not changed is the tremendous support they have provided to our stores and our 700 plus associates throughout the last 60 years. Without community, we would not be here today.”

The focus of the 60 year celebration will be local charities submitting applications for funding in each town where Farm and Home operates a store. Local store associates along with Farm & Home Supply ownership will determine the most worthy causes and begin giving funds out as early as March of 2020, wrapping up in December of 2020.

The goal is to give $120,000 or more in funds through the Farm & Home Supply Giving Fund with the Community Foundation Serving West Central Illinois & Northeast Missouri.

Dan Henke, Vice President of Farm and Home added, “Everything we do is centered toward providing a quality customer experience in the communities we serve because we live here, raise our families here and rely on loyal local customers to remain in business. This is a great way to give back.”

The campaign called FOUNDED IN COMMUNITY begins right away with applications being taken Online for local, qualifying organizations to apply. The goal is to provide at least $10,000 per community to aide with the support or growth of local charities.
