A Schuylkill County farmer is passing on charity to his community.

David Kistler of New Ringgold has won two donations of $2,500 from the Monsanto Fund.

He's giving the money to the West Penn Fire Company and Schuylkill County 4H.

Kistler was a winner of the Monsanto Fund's initiative "America's Farmers Grow Communities."

Since the USDA declared Schuylkill County a disaster area due to last year's dry weather Kistler won two $2,500 prizes instead of one.
