The organizations were selected based on need, as well as the benefits they deliver to the communities they serve, said Exmark President Mark Stinson.
“Exmark is very proud of our southeast Nebraska roots, and we are pleased to partner with the Toro Giving Program to support causes and organizations that do good work for people in the area,” Stinson said.
Headquartered in Beatrice, Neb., Exmark manufactures commercial mowers for landscape professionals. The Toro Giving Program is committed to beautifying and preserving outdoor environments, enhancing communities and improving people’s lives.
The Tecumseh Ball Association maintains three competition fields that are home to six baseball teams and eight softball teams. The non-profit organization receives most of its operating income from sign-up fees for youth players. The mower donation will help the association keep fees as minimal as possible, allowing more youth to participate, said Kim Beethe, treasurer of the Tecumseh Ball Association.
Tri-County Public School is a state-accredited K-12 school in a rural area south of DeWitt, Neb., about 17 miles northwest of Beatrice. Students from Jefferson, Saline and Gage counties attend the school.
The Beatrice Mary Family YMCA has served Beatrice and surrounding communities for 125 years.
