Checks Changing Hands

The Town of Sevastopol Emergency Medical Responders (E.M.R) will now be even closer to reaching their fundraising goals for the purchase of 16 new defibrillators thanks to the support of local farmer, Charles Stoeger, and America’s Farmers Grow Communities. The Sevastopol First Responders were presented $5,000 in total.

Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice.
