For the third year, Tractor Supply Company is partnering with the National FFA Foundation to produce limited edition, long-sleeved shirts for the National FFA Convention & Expo, which are now available exclusively in Tractor Supply stores. All net proceeds from sales of the shirts benefit FFA by supporting the National FFA Alumni Association and Living to Serve platform.
The shirts which cost $12.99 plus tax and feature the 2016 convention's theme "Transform Purpose to Action" will remain in stores while supplies last. Tractor Supply raised more than $217,000 through sales of the shirt last year alone.
"National FFA is grateful for our longstanding partnership with Tractor Supply that is making a positive difference in the lives of students," said Mark Poeschl, CEO, National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation.
