FARGO, ND — The Great Plains Food Bank receives a donation of nearly $112,000.
Local units of CHS, a global agriculture supply company, wraps up its “Harvest for Hunger” campaign.
The organization collects donations for 20 days in the month of March through a variety of fundraisers.
Different branches throughout the nation participate in the campaign.
CHS started the annual donation drive in 2011.
“It’s pretty exciting. Each business unit stands on their own to try to have a internal competition amongst each other,” said Northland Region Vice President Tom Lehar. “It becomes a fun way to go out and make it a competition and have fun and they do it every year and think about ways to make it exciting for the next year.”
Since 2011, more than $4.7 million and 3.4 million pounds of food have been donated to local food banks throughout the nation.
