Landmark Services Cooperative teams up to donate over 50,000 meals to families in need

Cottage Grove, Wis. [December 31, 2014] – In a season of giving, employees at Landmark Services Cooperative did just that to help local families in need.

 Thanks to the generosity and caring nature of the employees along with matching funds from CoBank and Land O’Lakes, Landmark Services Cooperative was able to donate 50,581 meals to Second Harvest Foodbank through their NBC15 Share your Holidays campaign.

In their first year of partnering with Second Harvest Foodbank on this campaign, Landmark Services Cooperative far exceeded their campaign goal due large-in-part to the excellent employee involvement in various fundraising events they took part in.

Employees at all Landmark locations were given several opportunities over the course of the campaign to participate including a soup and dessert bake-off, a pie in the face contest, cow pie bingo, penny wars, food donations and much more.  Money raised from each of the events was donated to the campaign.

Through the generous donations by Landmark employees, they raised enough meals to feed 10 families for one year.  “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,” notes Landmark Services Cooperative CEO, Robert Carlson.
