CHS Eastern Farmers is gathering donations of money, food and grain to help fight hunger. As part of CHS Harvest for Hunger food and fund drive, CHS Eastern Farmers will accept contributions from March 1-20 at any of its locations and deliver them to regional food banks.
“Hunger is a reality for more than 50 million people in America. That’s one in six who doesn’t have access to enough food,” says Chuck Miller, general manager of CHS Eastern Farmers. “We’re working together to make a difference for those in need.”
“Our local communities also win when CHS Country Operations makes a contribution to help friends and neighbors right here in our community. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to multiply the impact of every donation we make,” adds Miller.
CHS will make bonus contributions based on the number of donations that are received through the program so every dollar will go even further to help hungry people.
Donations can be made at any CHS Eastern Farmer’s location or can be mailed to P.O. Box 20 Brandon, SD 57005.
