The theme of this year’s special-edition FFA T-shirt at Tractor Supply Co. is “Your Growth is Limitless.” For the seventh year, Tractor Supply is selling FFA shirts in stores and online as a fundraiser for the National FFA Organization, just ahead of the National FFA Convention & Expo, taking place in October. Campaign proceeds will be distributed to chapters across the country, funding agricultural programs and activities for FFA youth.
“Each year, Tractor Supply Team Members and customers eagerly anticipate the FFA T-shirt Fundraiser, as it signals that the National FFA Convention & Expo is approaching, which is a major highlight for all FFA members,” said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president for marketing at Tractor Supply. “The fundraiser allows everyone to be a part of this exciting event while showing off their support for FFA, an organization critical to the future of agriculture in this country.”
The 2021 FFA T-shirt is long sleeve and available for $12.99 at Tractor Supply stores nationwide, at TractorSupply.com, and through the Tractor Supply mobile app. Proceeds from the program support three FFA programs: Gift of Blue, Living to Serve, and Alumni Legacy. Gift of Blue provides jackets for members who otherwise would not be able to afford a jacket; Living to Serve encourages students to participate in leadership opportunities and make positive contributions to their communities. The grants distributed through Alumni Legacy help build or strengthen their alumni chapters.
Since its inception in 2014, Tractor Supply’s T-shirt Fundraiser has raised a total of $1,714,884 for FFA programs. Additionally, Tractor Supply supports FFA in its mission through multiple annual fundraising events, such as Grants for Growing and activities at the local level.
This year’s National FFA Convention & Expo will be held Oct. 27 to 30 in Indianapolis and features both in-person and virtual programming. The convention is one of the world’s largest student conventions, intended to celebrate growth and achievement of the students, chapters, National FFA council members and more.
