Congressman Rick Crawford Applauds Arkansas Broadcasters’ Association for joining FARM Corps efforts

April 9th, 2020

Washington — Today, Arkansas Broadcasters’ Association launched their PSA for FARM Corps. The 30 second PSA informs both farmers and veterans where they can sign-up for the Farm And Ranch Mission program. 

“Whether it’s alerting citizens about tornadoes, or keeping folks up to date on the COVID-19 outbreak, our broadcasters are not just messangers but are a crucial resource to their local communities,” said Crawford. “I’m proud to have such an exceptional group join the efforts to spread the word about FARM Corps.”
