Grant from CHS purchases grain rescue tubes for Waubun Fire Department

The CHS ag retailer based out of Mahnomen, Minnesota, has announced a $3,400 grant to the Waubun Fire Department Relief Association. This money will be used to purchase grain rescue tubes for the local volunteer fire department.

“Safety is one of our top priorities at CHS,” said James Hardy, general manager. “We are always looking for ways to keep our employees, farmers and communities safe. We know the Waubun Fire Department shares that same commitment as our first responders put in many hours of training. We are proud to help in their efforts to have the right equipment in place for when emergencies happen.”

This donation was made possible through the CHS Seeds for Stewardship program, a competitive grant program that matches funds for projects in rural communities based on three core focus areas: safety, ag leadership development, and broad community engagement.
