CHS SunPrairie raises over $32,000 for local food pantries!
MINOT, ND (May 26, 2016) — CHS SunPrairie joined CHS locations across the country in sending more than $650,000 and nearly 400,000 pounds of food to hungry families through the annual CHS Harvest for Hunger food, funds and grain drive led by the Country Operations division of CHS, the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative.
Since the program’s launch in 2011, more than $4 million and 2.7 million pounds of food have been raised. Donations collected from March 1-20, as well as additional contributions by CHS, went to food shelves and other charitable organizations in the local communities we serve.
CHS SunPrairie held online and silent auctions, a raffle and a few local dinners to help raise food and funds. This year the cooperative raised just over $32,000! These funds were distributed to ten food pantries in the communities we do business in!
“Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is a core value for us. We’re so proud of our employees, customers and partners who contributed to help feed hungry families through CHS Harvest for Hunger. It’s exciting to be part of this effort and see how much our communities care about those in need,” says Brad Haugeberg, CHS SunPrairie general manager. CHS locations in more than 300 communities participated in this annual event.
