For 28 years, we have worked to make farm, ranch and rural life safer and healthier for all children through the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day(R) (PAF Safety Day) program. This month, we hope you will help us continue to work toward our mission on the Foundation's Day of Giving, Wednesday, Sept. 21. Aligning with National Farm Safety and Health Week's "Safety and Health for Youth in Agriculture" day, our Day of Giving is a time to celebrate the incredible story of the PAF Safety Day program -- past, present and future.
Each September since 1944, when United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed the first National Farm Safety and Health Week, farm safety and health partners from across the nation have joined forces to bring awareness to the risks in the agriculture industry and provide educational opportunities.
This year, the week is scheduled for September 18-24, with each day highlighting a different area of the industry.
In addition to the Foundation's Day of Giving Sept. 21, Jana Davidson, program manager with the Foundation, and Josie Rudolphi, with the University of Illinois and board member of the Foundation, will provide a webinar at 2 p.m. CST entitled "Farm Youth Mental Health: What We Know and How to Help." For more information on the webinar and how to register for free, visit https://www.necasag.org/…
With your help, the PAF Safety Day program will continue to grow and educate through its potentially lifesaving, hands-on, age-appropriate approach. Visit https://bit.ly/… to join us in helping teach kids to be safe and healthy on farms, on ranches and at home.
