Concern for Community shines in Co-op Cares Food Drive - Elkhart
Dennis Reimer, Morton County Food Bank Administrator
During its annual Co-op Cares Food Drive, TCEC employees raised funds and the cooperative matched them to raise $3,140. Four food pantries in local communities will each receive $785 thanks to the generosity of the cooperative and its employees.
The donation was delivered to the Morton County Food Bank March 5. The food pantry is supported by individuals, businesses, organizations, and churches.
“If you know of someone in Morton County who is food insecure, tell them they can get help at the Morton County Food Bank,” said Dennis Reimer, coordinator. “Only a third of the approximate 11 percent of the county food insecure population seek assistance.”
Other local food pantries receiving funds this year are in Beaver, Boise City and Guymon, Oklahoma.
“Concern for Community is one of our seven cooperative principles,” Chris Purdy, vice president of Member Solutions at TCEC, said. “Our employees gave generously this year to help those in need.”
