Galt, Calif., (November 20, 2017) – On November 9, the California FFA Foundation announced an exciting new partnership with Blue Diamond Growers. On Giving Tuesday, Blue Diamond Growers will match every FFA jacket donation up to 200 jackets, significantly aiding the California FFA Foundation in reaching their 400-jacket goal.
On Tuesday, November 28, the California FFA Foundation will celebrate Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. This is the second year the California FFA has participated in Giving Tuesday with a focus on providing jackets for FFA members.
