High Plains Cooperative supports hometown community
Plainview, MN (August 28, 2020) – High Plains Cooperative announced today a $5,550.95 grant to Plainview-Elgin-Millville School District. The funds will support the purchase of 2 badly needed refrigerated food bars for the High School and Elementary School.
“We’re proud to support this project as a way to strengthen the community and see it thrive,” says Duane Hassig, Board Chairman, High Plains Cooperative. “Projects like this are essential to enriching our rural area and the people who live here.”
In addition to the funds contributed by High Plains Cooperative, the contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by a CHS Seeds for Stewardship grant, which helps cooperatives grow their impact locally. Together more than $10,000.00 will benefit Plainview-Elgin-Millville School District.
“Cooperatives were founded on the principles of education, community involvement and cooperation,” says Hassig. “By combining resources, we are providing double the impact to our area and demonstrating the cooperative spirit.”
“On behalf of PEM Schools, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to High Plains Cooperative and CHS Seeds for Stewardship for the donation of 2 mechanically refrigerated food bars,” says Tami Folkert, FSD, CFM, PEM School District. “We have been in need of these for several years and in fact are required by code to upgrade ours. These food bars will be serving our students for years to come,” says Folkert.
