Monsanto fund grant helps kids art classes at Dahmen

Joanne Druffel, has been awarded a $2,500 America's Farmers Grow Communities grant from the Monsanto Fund. Druffel specified the donation to be used by the Artisans at the Dahmen Barn in Uniontown for the 2018 Summer Kids Art Program in conjunction with art through the Colton School District. These funds will help sponsor children and an instructor for the summer art classes.

The purpose of the Grow Communities program is to partner with farmers to make a positive impact in farm communities across the country by supporting local nonprofit organizations. Since the program began in 2010, more than $29 million has been directed to organizations across rural America. Learn more at AmericasFarmers.com.
