Agri-Dairy Products, Inc. has and continues to support a wide
range of charitable organizations and worthy causes in our
community and in other areas. From cancer research to our local
chamber of commerce, we acknowledge and proudly support each.
However, corporations can only support these organizations
monetarily. It is people who volunteer and donate their time and
effort which enable these worthy causes to be successful.
We understand this and are proud to say that Agri-Dairy employees
volunteer and give themselves in support of many charitable
organizations. They have asked that their names not be mentioned
since they do not seek recognition, but rather the gratification
of giving to others. However we are proud to mention the many
causes for which they have so generously committed themselves.
They have given their time and effort to the Special Olympics,
which through the power of sports, people with intellectual
disabilities discover new strengths, skills and abilities. We have
flown on two Honor Flight missions, bringing approximately 60 WWII
veterans on each flight to the World War II Memorial in Washington
These flights honor our veterans for their service to our country
during a time in our nation’s history which challenged our
freedoms that we cherish so much as Americans today.
Agri-Dairy employees understand and honor our most valuable
citizens, senior citizens. Our employees regularly volunteer at
local senior centers and are involved with local agencies to make
sure that the needs of our seniors are being met. It is so
important that those who have worked hard, to build our country to
become the greatest nation on earth, are not forgotten.
Agri-Dairy allows time away from work and gives financial support to any employee who donates their time to support these and any other community causes.
At a time when less history and basic handwriting is being taught in our nation's school systems, it remains important for children to understand the importance of a nation's food supply. The independence and political stability of a country is based on the ability to feed its people. The United States has continued to have a stable and abundant food supply which has given us the ability to feed ourselves and the ability to feed other parts of the world. But today most children are unaware of where and how basic foodstuffs, from both plant and animal, are created. When asked, many children believe milk comes from a carton in the supermarket. They are only partially right, but sadly many know little more than that. At Agri-dairy we are aware of the importance of educating our children and making them aware of how food is grown, how milk is produced and the importance of sustainable farming. By bringing children to local farms, they can see and understand how food is grown, how milk is produced and how proper farming techniques and management insure sustainability for many years to come. Each generation must understand and appreciate the importance of an adequate food supply and how important it is to us as a nation. Our goal is to have our children look at popcorn as a kernel of corn, to look at milk as a food designed by nature for the total nutrition of mammals, and to look at a blade of grass as an important feedstuff for animals.
