Mississippi Ag Gives Back

Jun 9, 2017, 09:07 AM

At Mississippi Ag and Arkansas Ag, our staff knows how important it is to be involved in our community.

During the Dixie National Rodeo each year, our stores sponsor the Kids Corral on site at the rodeo.

While the rodeo is going on, members of the community had the opportunity to give donations to support a summer toy drive for Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital, with the company matching each donation dollar, for dollar.

Before deciding on a time for us to deliver these toys, we challenged our employees to donate to the cause. Our employees knocked it out of the park and we were able to donate 177 toys to the hospital.

This week, a group from our Yazoo City store took a trip to the hospital to deliver the toys to Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital.

Our staff had the best time picking out each of the toys and putting them all together.  So many of our staff members, know the importance of the work that Blair E. Batson does, and how a toy during a stressful time can sometimes provide the right distraction needed.

A John Deere toy might not seem like much to some, but for some it can mean the world. For more information about the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital, click here.
