Titan Is Raising Money to Help Farmers in Crisis

Posted on June 26, 2019

Spring floods inundated Midwest farms, and Titan International Inc. is donating funds to help the Farm Rescue Foundation address the crisis. Tire dealers and their customers can help the cause.

Titan will donate up to $10,000 to the Farm Rescue Founation as part of a social media campaign.

To raise money for recovery efforts, Titan will donate $50 for every social media post, up to $10,000, for each picture of farm equipment equipped with Titan's Low Sidewall Technology (LSW) tires. Posts should feature the hashtag #LSW4FarmRescue.

The money will be given to Farm Rescue Foundation, a nonprofit that helps farm and ranch families when crisis strikes. The group's mission is to help farmers and ranchers who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster. This means the foundation provides the necessary equipment and manpower to plant, hay or harvest their crop.

“In the agriculture community, we know farmers will be the first to step up and help a neighbor in need, but the last to ask for help," says Scott Sloan, ag product manager at Titan. "Titan is proud to support organizations like Farm Rescue that are directly giving back to farmers impacted by hardships."

In addition, Twin Valley Tire Inc., a tire dealership in Milbank, S.D., worked with Titan to outfit Farm Rescue Foundation's equipment with tires.

"We are very satisfied with the Goodyear LSW tires that Titan has sponsored for our tractors and combines,” says Bill Gross, founder and president of Farm Rescue. “The excellent traction, low compaction and smooth ride that these tires provide is impressive. They are durable tires that provide unparalleled floatation across wet soil conditions. Truly an industry leading product.”

“The work that Farm Rescue does for the agriculture community is commendable,” says Sloan. “I would encourage other companies in this industry and those that depend highly on food, fuel and fiber to get involved with this organization in any way they can.”
