Hometown proud. That is what Farmers Alliance is. We are especially proud of one of our employees who gives many volunteer hours to make a difference in her community. Meet Tami Gossett. 

Tami Gossett has volunteered most of her life. A 14- year employee who works in Underwriting, Tami began her service throughout McPherson by the volunteer initiative that Farmers Alliance provided. She is currently serving on the United Way Board of Directors for McPherson County and personally leads the Community Impact committee. 

Through Farmers Alliance, she loves building care packages for people in need, coordinating food donations for the local food bank, and helping to lead the FAMI United Way annual campaign. Tami served three years on the AEI board of directors (Farmers Alliance employee organization), and eight years on the Customer Service social committee, which entailed many FAMI social events. She also served on the FAMI 125-year celebration float committee in 2013. 

“United Way has given me such great opportunities to serve and meet people in our community. It’s through this organization that we have gotten the chance to bring Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program to McPherson County, allowing children up to age five the opportunity to have a new book once a month, free of charge,” Tami said. 

She added, “I started young with volunteering at my own church and then every day at my kid’s school, eventually leading a group of women with co-dependency before moving to McPherson. I truly love being able to help and be needed. When more hands come together, it becomes so much easier. I love to fill a void and meet new people. It feels like I am there to make a difference. It’s a passion of mine.” 

Making a difference in communities is about the people. It’s about serving a greater good; making the world a little brighter for the years to come. Farmers Alliance is proud to spotlight Tami for all of her service. She is definitely making a difference!
