Local farmer Edward Anderson Jr. has directed a $2,500 donation to Archie Youth and Community Activities (AYCA). Funded by America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will assist with center operating costs and maintenance of their baseball fields this year.
“I believe in giving young kids the opportunity to improve themselves,” said Anderson. “The AYCA supports our community through activities that teach kids about sportsmanship and other life skills, to supplement what they learn in the classroom.”
