2017 FFA Corn Drive
2016 FFA Corn Drive
The NYA FFA held their annual Corn Drive amidst the festivities of Homecoming week in October to raise money for the True Friends/Camp Courage, a camp for children and adults with disabilities. FFA members went from farm to farm, collecting donations of corn or money from local farmers. They also visited local businesses for their monetary donations as well. This year, NYA FFA raised 739 bushels of corn plus various amounts of cash and checks. Overall, $3,900 was raised for the charity as of October 28th. NYA FFA would like to thank everyone who donated in this year and in the past, and the Wickenhausers for hosting the event at their farm.
