Give the Gift of Blue

Gift of Blue

For most current and former members, the official FFA jacket is more than an article of clothing. It’s an article of faith, honor, pride and tradition.

Faith in the land that rests beneath our feet. Honor in the values we uphold. Pride in the American farm, and those who feed the world. And a tradition that extends through generations and families.

But not everyone can wear the FFA jacket – not because they don’t deserve to, but because they cannot afford to. A new campaign, called Give the Gift of Blue, gives current FFA members a chance to experience the pride of wearing their own blue corduroy jacket. Deserving FFA members will apply directly to the National FFA Organization, by submitting an essay outlining their community service and FFA involvement. The campaign is funded by RAM Trucks, Brandt Foundation, Shop FFA donations, and the National FFA Foundation.
