The Des Moines Register reports a $3,200 check was presented to Findley Elementary School and will be used to purchase projectors and three digital video cameras. Another $3,000 was donated to another fund that supports educational needs.
John Deere Credit president Jim Israel said the company wants kids at the school to each read 25 books this year. To encourage this, students will be able to earn John Deere Bucks, which they can use to purchase school supplies.
Employees from the credit company also take time to visit the school and help students with reading through a partnership formed three years ago.
"The feedback is terrific," Israel told the Register. "It's been a great relationship, and we're trying to motivate kids to learn good life skills."
John Deere Credit provides financing for those looking to buy the company's equipment. There are a number of payment options available, including recurring deductions from bank accounts. Loans can also be managed online at the company's site.
