Winneshiek Coop recently presented two donations to Mabel-area organizations. The first was a $1,000 donation to the Mabel Area Food Shelf and the second was a $1,000 donation to the Mabel-Canton FFA Chapter.

The donations were made possible by Winneshiek Coop and the Land O'Lakes Foundation through its Member Co-op Match Program. The foundation program matches dollar-for-dollar the donations of Land O'Lakes member cooperatives, thus doubling the funds available for community projects.

"We appreciate the opportunity to partner with the Land O'Lakes Foundation to help support programs where we work and live," said Coop Location Manager Cam Lee.

The Land O'Lakes Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life in communities where Land O'Lakes, Inc., has members, employees, plants, and facilities. Land O'Lakes Foundation proactively helps rural communities prosper and prepare for tomorrow by donating resources that develop and strengthen organizations dedicated to human service, education and youth, civic and art endeavors.

The Mabel Area Food Shelf is a great local project. Waudby, as president, works alongside Sue Roppe, vice president; LeAnn Howard, secretary; Anita Schissel, treasurer and members, Bonnie Anderson, Kirsten Wyffels, Gail George, Louise Klieboer and Gayle Stortz to ensure the community has the best products available. This donation will help to maintain that goal.

The Mabel-Canton FFA is committed to the future of youth in agriculture and business. They currently have 30 members led by officers Logan Henry, president; Stephanie Hafner, vice president; Christy Welsher, treasurer; Abby Hanson, secretary; Mason Henry, reporter and Tyler Stortz, sentinel.

Winneshiek Coop is pleased to be a part of the Mabel Community. Winneshiek Coop has locations in Mabel, Decorah, Cresco, Granger, Ridgeway and Burr Oak.
