CG&S directors distribute $4,800 among four school districts

The board of directors of Cooperative Grain & Supply, in partnership with the Land O?Lakes Foundation, distributed a check for $1,200 to each of the four school districts represented in their service area: USD 408 Marion-Florence, USD 410 Durham-Hillsboro-Lehigh, USD 419 Canton-Galva and USD 411 Goessel. According to Lyman Adams, CG&S general manager, the board felt it should use the matching funds this year to support the efforts of local school districts to provide an education for students.

This is the 12th year CG&S has participated in the Land O?Lakes matching-fund program. The partnership has resulted in more than $75,000 in donations to community projects, including local fire departments, colleges, 4-H clubs, hospitals and various organizations. ?CG&S believes in supporting the communities that we are a part of, and by using the funds available from LOL Foundation, CG&S has been able to double the amount given,? Adams said.CGSchecksMarionCanGal424
