ADM Contributes $75,000 to Progressive Agriculture Foundation
DECATUR, Ill., Aug. 27, 2013 — Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced that it is donating $75,000 to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation® (PAF) to teach children and their parents how to stay safe and healthy on the farm, on the ranch and at home.
“ADM is committed to safety and education for families in the communities where we live and work,” said Amber Kaufmann, ADM Cares specialist. “We are proud to partner with PAF in their ongoing efforts to improve farm safety for children.”
Each year, an estimated 15,000 children who visit, live or work on U.S. farms are injured, and more than 100 children die from farm-related injuries. PAF launched Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® in 1995 to help stop these preventable injuries and deaths. Offered as one-day events throughout the United States and Canada, Safety Days programming teaches children safety and health lessons that can be applied on a farm, on a ranch and at home.
Since the program’s inception, more than 1.1 million children and adults have participated. In 2012 alone, 415 Safety Days events were held with more than 98,000 children and adults participating.
ADM’s $75,000 contribution is being funded through ADM Cares, the company’s social-investment program. ADM Cares funds initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. Learn more about ADM Cares atwww.adm.com/admcares.
