With help from the Cargill Cares program, North Battleford employees secured $3,850 in donations to the Breakfast for Learning program.
In 2014, Cargill had the opportunity to participate in the Breakfast for Learning program that the North Battleford Comprehesive High School (NBCHS) runs each and every year. The program gives students the opportunity to gain life skills that they can use for years to come. It also provides kids with healthy snacks and meals that improve focus and learning ability.
Through the Cargill Cares program, the North Battleford retail location was able to support this program and extend a helping hand to the local community. Cargill employees presented a cheque for $2,500 to NBCHS on Dec. 12, 2014. The Cargill head office in Minneapolis also matched half of the amount secured by the North Battleford team and sent an additional cheque to the school. The combined donation totalled $3,850.
