murphy farmState Senator Laura Murphy (D - Des Plaines) worked with the Mercer County Farm Bureau and the IL Farm Bureau to organize the donation of a pickup tuck full of sweet corn from Mercer County IL to needy families in the 28th District.

Murphy participates in the Illinois Farm Bureau's "Adopt-a-Legislator" program, which allows downstate and rural county farm bureaus to "adpot" Chicago and suburban lawmakers to educate them about the needs and desires of the State's Farmers. Murphy's adopted Farm Bureau comes from Mercer County, a western Illinois country bordering the Mississippi River.

The corn was donated to Catholic Charities in Des Plaines, the Des Plaines Self Help Closet and Pantry and the Schaumburg Barn Senior Center.
