GROWMARK has donated $50,000 to support relief efforts following Hurricane Harvey through the Midwest Food Bank, a Salvation Army First Responder organization. The contribution was made through The GROWMARK Foundation, GROWMARK’s philanthropic arm which supports not-for-profit charitable organizations.
“They have put together disaster relief boxes to help those residents who have been affected by Harvey,” said GROWMARK Foundation manager Amy Bradford. “We know that Midwest Food Bank has sent five semis full of thousands of these boxes and hygiene kits to help in the Houston, Texas and Louisiana area.”
GROWMARK’s donation will enable the Midwest Food Bank and the Salvation Army to continue their important mission for as long as there is a need. In addition, Bradford says employees throughout the GROWMARK System continue to individually support relief efforts, and they will be watching the situation developing with Hurricane Irma to determine what help might be needed in the aftermath of that storm heading our way.
