Center Foundation Offers Opportunity to Give $20 for Tomorrow

Pennsylvania Center for Dairy Excellence

The Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association has donated $10,000 to the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania to support the Center Foundation’s Dairy Leaders of Tomorrow program. The donation was made possible through milkshake and dairy foods sales profits generated at Pennsylvania Farm Show and other events.

“The Center Foundation is committed to helping dairy youth develop and pursue a lifelong passion in the dairy industry,” said Paula Meabon, chair of the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation Board of Directors. “We are pleased to have Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association as a partner in delivering on this commitment.”

In order to expose more individuals to the foundation’s work and to encourage greater involvement, the Center Foundation has launched a “$20 for Tomorrow” drive through the end of 2013. This campaign will be promoted at upcoming industry events, with giving baskets at Center for Dairy Excellence exhibit booths and giving opportunities included on center event registration forms.

Individuals with a passion for dairy are encouraged to donate at least $20 to support the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania’s mission. This minimal amount will allow contributors to stay informed about the programs the Center Foundation is supporting while learning how it is making a difference in the future of the dairy industry.

The Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization created to support educational initiatives that grow and sustain the Pennsylvania dairy industry. The foundation provides the opportunity for individuals and organizations to make tax-deductible contributions to support educational initiatives within Pennsylvania’s dairy industry. Since launched in 2010, the Center Foundation has delivered on its commitment to the future of Pennsylvania’s dairy industry by offering scholarships, hosting dairy tours and delivering a full-fledged dairy business curriculum for high school level students.
