DES MOINES, Iowa—Titan International Inc. is helping to raise money in support of the Farm Rescue Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping farm and ranch families in crisis, by launching a social media campaign to raise funds for the organization's recent flood recovery efforts.
Major flooding has damaged farms in areas across the upper Midwest this spring. To raise money for Farm Rescue's recovery efforts, Titan said it will donate $50 per social media post—up to $10,000—that features a picture of farm equipment with Titan's low sidewall technology tires and #LSW4FarmRescue.
"In the agriculture community, we know farmers will be the first to step up and help a neighbor in need, but the last to ask for help," Titan Ag Product Manager Scott Sloan said. "Titan is proud to support organizations like Farm Rescue that are directly giving back to farmers impacted by hardships."
In addition to raising funds through social media, Titan and local tire dealer Twin Valley Tire are providing Farm Rescue with the tires necessary for their equipment.
"The excellent traction, low compaction and smooth ride that these (Goodyear LSW) tires provide is impressive," Farm Rescue founder president Bill Gross said. "They are durable tires that provide unparalleled floatation across wet soil conditions."
Farm Rescue helps farmers and ranchers who have experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster, providing necessary equipment and manpower to plant and harvest their crop.
"The work that Farm Rescue does for the agriculture community is commendable," Sloan said.
