SC Department of Agriculture Shows HeART
COLUMBIA, SC – An effort is underway within state government to support a nationwide program called “America Supports You” launched by the U. S. Department of Defense. The program is designed to spotlight what Americans are doing to support our military personnel.

As a part of that effort, Commissioner Hugh Weathers has asked South Carolinians to join in providing for families of those who have been wounded in action or those who are seriously ill through Fisher House Foundation. Each Fisher House is a military version of the Ronald McDonald House and holds up to 22 families in separate sleeping facilities.

Half of the proceeds from the HeART of Agriculture note cards will be reserved for the Fisher House Foundation project. Four watercolors of barn scenes painted by South Carolina artists were reproduced into sets of 12 note cards with envelopes will now sell at a reduced price of $5 per set.

To order your HeART of Agriculture note cards in support of our nation’s Armed Forces, send a check or money order for $5 for each set payable to ADVOCATES FOR AGRICULTURE, and mail to Heart of Agriculture, PO Box 11280, Columbia, SC, 29211.

Also, if you would like to receive a free dog tag, you may do so by going to the America Supports You web site, clicking on "Join the Team - Show Your Support", and letting them know how you are joining in the effort to support our troops.
