CHS Ag Services, based out of Warren, Minnesota, has announced a $5,000 grant to the Crookston Fire Department.

    This money will help the local volunteer fire department purchase a new fire truck.

    “CHS has a long-standing commitment to support the local communities where its employees live and work,” said Ryan Anderson, general manager. “Safety is one of our top priorities every day, and we are proud to support local organizations like the Crookston Fire Department, whose tireless work keeps our communities, our employees and our families safe.”

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