The passion for John Deere enables a youngster to make a crucial decision

Posted by Green Fun Store on 4/22/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
Some people claim that everything happens for a reason, and certain situations make that logic feasible. On March 3, 2010, a band of thieves robbed a safe from St. Mary's parish in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. After that, a certain chain of events allowed a six year old child to remedy the problem with his unexpected idea.

Although there was no actual money in the safe at the time of the robbery, the church was going to have to replace the safe itself, which the volunteers and priests simply didn't have the funding for. Lukas Vuorinen's mother, Kristi, serves as St. Mary's secretary, so the task of replacing the safe fell into her hands. Seeing how distraught his mother was over the loss, Lukas recommended the solution of buying a particular John Deere safe. For inexplicable reasons, other than the strong reputation of the farm equipment manufacturer, the boy loves John Deere accessories. According to his mother, practically everything he owns bears the green emblem. He even has a John Deere bedding materials.

When Lukas' father called the local Deere dealership and explained the church's dilemma, the owner eventually responded by agreeing to donate a safe free of cost. Apparently, the child's recommendation was justified, as the owner ended up providing the parish with the exact same model that Lukas pinpointed.
