FARMVILLE — Farm supply retailer Southern States Cooperative will kick off its annual FFA fundraiser on Tuesday in an effort to support agricultural education.

“The annual ‘FFA Paper Emblem’ campaign benefits the National FFA organization’s local, state and national levels to provide funding to the youth organization that prepares students for leadership roles, personal growth and career success in agriculture,” according to a press release from Southern States.

“The community is encouraged to purchase a $1 ‘I’m Supporting FFA’ paper emblem at their local Southern States to support the cause.”
