Farm Rescue assisted 50 farm families in 2013 and plans to assist a similar number of fami- lies as available funding and volunteer staffing allows. "Now is the time for farmers to apply for planting assistance. Priority consideration will be given to ap- plications received by April lst," said Bill Gross, founder & president. "Friends and neighbors may also anony- mously refer a family that is in need of assistance since some families are hesitant to ask for assistance them- selves." Farm Rescue is proud to introduce a Sponsor-A- Volunteer program, which will provide an avenue for potential donors to help further the nonprofit organi- zation's mission of assisting farm families who have experienced unexpected crises. By making a donation via check or Farm Rescue's website, anyone can c0n:' tribute to the important work of the good-hearted, com- passionate volunteers. "We are requesting people to consider helping us off- set some volunteer costs, which in tum will allow Farm Rescue to mobilize more volunteers," said Bill Gross, founder & president. "By sponsoring a volunteer, you are helping us assist more farm families who have ex- perienced major injury, illness or natural disaster." Farm Rescue was founded in 2006 and has helped more than 250 families since its inception. The orga- nization's mission is to help farmers who have expe- rienced a major illness, injury, or natural disaster by pro- viding the necessary equipment and manpower to plant or harvest their crop. Farm Rescue helps farm families in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Minneso- ta, and Iowa.
