STATESVILLE, NC – Carolina Farm Credit’s employees recently donated items to the USO of North Carolina. At their recent employee appreciation day, employees were encouraged to bring items that will be distributed to military personnel passing through the Charlotte area. In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Farm Credit, a goal of 100 items was set. This goal was exceeded in stunning fashion. A $1,000 check was also presented to the USO on behalf of Carolina Farm Credit and its employees.
