The donation will be given at a ceremony at noon Tuesday at Grace United Methodist Church, 127 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Centre Hall.
A spokeswoman for Americas Farmers Grow Communities, said that Steve Wolfe, of Oaks Spring Farms in Gregg Township, won an Americas Farmers program. Wolfe selected the Hope Fund to receive the donation.
Theyre a good local organization that helps families in need, and I just wanted to give back to them, Wolfe said. Its just a nice way of showing thanks, I guess.
The Hope Fund financially assists residents of the Penns Valley Area School District who are dealing with a medical crisis or personal disaster.
Americas Farmers Grow Communities works with farmers to support nonprofits doing important work in rural communities. Farmers can enter to win $2,500, which is then directed to the farmers nonprofit of choice, Baker said.
Launched in 2011, the program services 1,289 counties in 39 states.
