A $1 scoop of frozen custard at Culver’s recently went a long way in supporting local agricultural education at various Culver’s restaurants. Culver’s recent “Scoops of Thanks Day” at 650 restaurants around the country involved customers making a $1 donation for a single scoop of frozen custard. The project raised more than $111,000 dollars for local ag education during the one-day event on May 3rd. The fundraiser is a part of the Culver’s “Thank You Farmers” project, which got started in 2013. Up to the May 3rd event, Culver’s had raised more than $1.7 million dollars over that time to support the National FFA Organization, local FFA chapters, as well as various agricultural organizations.
A Culver’s press release says, “These young agricultural leaders are our future, and we are so thankful that our guests understand how important it is to support them and their education. A $1 donation may seem small, but when all that generosity adds up, we are able to make a positive difference for so many people across the country.”
