Cavender’s supports FFA with T-Shirt sales
Cavender's supporting FFA with T-Shirt sales
Starting Monday, March 23, 2020, Cavender’s customers can support the Future Farmers of America (FFA) by buying T-shirts. The money will support the Texas FFA Foundation for 2020 scholarships. Customers can choose from three styles. The shirts cost between $15 and $18.
Many FFA students were devastated when the Houston and Austin Rodeo junior livestock shows were cancelled due to the coronavirus. They work all year long to prepare for the shows and many of the students depend on the college scholarships and financial aid. The 2020 scholarships will be awarded during the 92nd Texas FFA State Convention in Dallas that takes place in July.
“The scope of the Texas FFA is growing and we are honored you will be growing with us. Our students will be better leaders tomorrow because we did not allow them to be fragile today,” said Aaron Alejandro, Executive Director Texas FFA Foundation.
Cavender’s has stores in 12 states, including Texas. The $100,000 contribution was made by Cavender’s Wrangler, Ariat, M&F Western, Durango, Cinch, Hooey and Panhandle Western Wear/Rock and Roll Denim.
The Texas FFA Foundation currently awards more than $2.3 million in academic and award scholarships annually. More than 200,000 students are enrolled in agricultural science education courses in Texas; there are more than 137,000 Texas FFA members, 1,073 local FFA chapters, and 2,500 Agricultural Science Education Teachers. Cavender’s is a family owned and operated western wear retailer based in Texas with 85 stores located across 12 states. Founded by James R. and Pat Cavender in 1965 in Pittsburg, Texas, Cavender’s remains a family operation, with sons Joe, Mike and Clay Cavender involved in the day-to-day operations. The family lives the western lifestyle, operating three working ranches in Texas with registered Brangus and Charolais cattle.
