Local farmer donates to New Haven-Berger FPD

Wayne Carl of Carl Farms, Berger, directed $2,500 to the New Haven-Berger Fire Protection District through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Bayer Fund. The program provides farmers the opportunity to support and give back to nonprofit organizations they care about in their local communities by enrolling for a chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit of their choice.

As part of their mission, New Haven-Berger Fire Protection District will use the monies to purchase uniforms and protective equipment for its firefighters.

Celebrating its 10th year, America’s Farmers Grow Communities partners with farmers to support nonprofit organizations strengthening rural communities.

“A better life is Bayer’s goal. Farmers are invested in their communities, they root for their neighbors, and they know when and where there is a need,” said Al Mitchell, vice president corporate engagement with Bayer. “Farmers are one of America’s best resources, which is why Grow Communities partners with them to direct donations to the organizations they are passionate about and that make a positive impact and a better life in communities.”
