Minnkota Cares raises $3,947 for local causes
The Minnkota employee giving fund filled up with donations as donors filled up with ice cream.
On June 22, Minnkota’s Grand Forks employees proved that ice cream can bring out the sweet side of people, with more than 60 donors making annual pledges to the Minnkota Cares fund during the Ice Cream for Local Dreams event. In all, employees donated $3,947 to the employee giving fund, which will be distributed to local charities and causes throughout the year.
Those who participated in the Ice Cream for Local Dreams fundraiser simply filled out a pledge card with their donation to receive a free frozen treat from the ice cream truck parked just outside the door. The event was a great opportunity to chat with employees of all departments as they gave back – and sugared up!
The Minnkota Cares committee would like to thank all of the employees who stopped by and donated. Your contributions will help support the charitable organizations that mean the most to YOU, while living out Minnkota's core cooperative principle of Concern for Community.
