Supporting the places where we live, learn, work and play: Giving back in 2018

Supporting the places where we live, learn, work and play: Giving back in 2018

Christensen Farms is committed to strengthening our local communities through companywide and individual investments. Across the Upper Midwest, we participate in a variety of events, programs and initiatives that help make our communities better places to live, work and play. What’s even greater is the many employees of ours that are active volunteers, devoting their personal time to make a difference in the lives of others. They work with students through programs such as Junior Achievement, serve on local volunteer fire departments, coach youth athletic teams and participate in youth agriculture education, such as FFA and 4-H.

In 2018, Christensen Farms made over 200 unique contributions, including monetary and in-kind donations, sponsorships and volunteer time. With a keen focus on supporting agriculture education and awareness activities, veterans, local emergency services and other community engagement initiatives across the regions we are located, here is a breakdown of what made up ALL of these great gifts!

  • Over 60 contributions were made to support local ag education and awareness, including local 4H and FFA Chapters, secondary education institutes focused on developing future leaders in ag, amongst many more.
  • Over 80 contributions were made to support our local communities, including pork donations to local food shelves during the holiday season and late spring.
  • Over 30 donations made to local public safety departments for keeping our employees, their families and our organization safe.
  • Over 20 contributions were made to support our veterans. This included monetary contributions to 13 local veterans’ organizations who dedicate their time to supporting those who have served for each of us and our country.
