Landmark Services Cooperative donates over 81,000 meals to families in need
Ag cooperative and food banks have shared mission to feed the world
COTTAGE GROVE, WI, Dec. 28, 2018 – During the season of giving, Landmark Services Cooperative (LSC) did just that to help local families in need. Thanks to the generosity and caring nature of the employees, members, and business partners, LSC was able to raise and donate 81,982 meals to Second Harvest Foodbank through their NBC15 Share Your Holidays campaign.
LSC is proud to be a diamond sponsor and support this campaign to help end hunger in our communities. This is the sixth year of partnering with Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin on the NBC15 Share Your Holidays campaign. The foodbank receives over one million requests for help with food security in the 16 counties it serves.
Together, over the course of the campaign employees and members participated in various events, including an online auction, closet clearance sale, pumpkin carving contest, soup & bread contest, dessert bake-off, pie in the face contest and much more. Money raised from each of the events was donated to the campaign.
“Our Landmark team truly exceeded all my expectations with their generosity and big hearts during this campaign. The impact their donations will have in our local communities is absolutely remarkable,” said a heartfelt Shannon Horstmeyer, executive assistant of LSC.
