Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/13/2017
Members and employees of Landmark Services Cooperative donated over 6,200 meals to help feed hungry families in need in southern Wisconsin in August. Together Landmark members and employees raised more than $2,000 for Second Harvest Foodbank
of Southern Wisconsin and its sister foodbank, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. The money was raised during a Landmark Agronomy employee auction and three member appreciation events in Whitewater, Fall River and Albany
The donation will support services in Second Harvest's 16-county service area in southwestern Wisconsin and Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin's 36-county coverage area. One dollar donated to Second Harvest provides three meals for those in need.
"Our involvement in the community has always been a strong focus for us but, over the past couple years, our talented group of employees have really stepped up to contribute to the communities we serve by volunteering and giving financially," said Jeremy
Henkels, executive vice president of shared services for Landmark. "I'm proud to be surrounded by such amazing people."
Second Harvest Foodbank of southern Wisconsin serves 16 counties in southwestern Wisconsin.
