RALEIGH – AgCarolina Farm Credit announced a $3,000 donation to Kaylee’s Legocy, an organization with a mission to provide Lego sets to children in hospitals, allowing them and their families a creative outlet together in their fight against cancer.
Employees have the option to participate in “A Cause a Quarter” each quarter. The quarterly campaign requires a $25 donation from participating employees to a non-profit voted on by all employees of the association. Participants are able to wear jeans each Friday of the quarter in which they participate.
Chosen by employees for the second quarter of 2021 was Kaylee’s Legocy. With employee and Association contributions, the total donation amount is $3,000.
“AgCarolina Farm Credit’s employees have a heart for giving,” said AgCarolina CEO Dave Corum. “A Cause a Quarter is the product of an employee suggestion and has been a great way for our team to understand how we can all work together to make an impact. There are many great organizations throughout eastern North Carolina doing great things like the folks with Kaylee’s Legocy. AgCarolina is proud to provide these funds to Kaylee’s Legocy as they seek to make life a little better for families in the battle of pediatric cancer.”
