Deere & Company Supports Farm Safety 4 Just Kids
Wednesday, February 1st, 2012
Deere & Company (collectively called John Deere) generously supports the non-profit organization Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. John Deere consists of three major business segments (agriculture and turf, construction and forestry, and credit). Those segments, along with the support operations of parts and power systems, are focused on helping customers be more productive as they help to improve the quality of life for people around the world.
"Deere & Company's generous gift will allow us to continue creating educational materials and presentations to teach our youth about the importance of farm safety," said David Schweitz, executive director of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids.
Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son. 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. Over 130 chapters in the United States and Canda conduct safety and health programs within their communities.
