Titan donates tires to help Future Farmers
Titan International Inc. has added Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 10-12, 2013 in Grand Island, Neb., to the list of events at which they company auctions farm tires it donates for the benefit of the Future Farmers of America (FFA).
Titan donated a total of 74 tires at the Sept. 10 event -- valued at more than $120,000 -- which raised $38,760 for the local FFA chapter.
"We take great pride in supporting the FFA and helping to benefit the next generation of growers," says Scott Sloan, agricultural product manager at Titan.
"We've been doing this very successfully for years at Farm Progress and Sunbelt Ag Expo, and it's great to see that the event went off without a hitch at our first year doing it in Nebraska."
In addition to holding tire auctions, Titan also has an antique tractor restoration program for students and FFA members that take on the task of restoring antique tractors. In 2012 alone, Titan donated more than 1,000 tires to student FFA members and 264 tires valued at more than $250,000 to local FFA auctions.
