Bloomington, Ill. – GROWMARK, through its foundation, donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross of the Heartland to help address flood-related issues. "Heavy storms and flooding have devastated many communities," said Amy Bradford, Manager of the GROWMARK Foundation. "Many people and farmers we do business with have struggled to deal with the flooding. We wanted to do something to help," added Bradford. GROWMARK supports disaster relief efforts and organizations annually as needed. GROWMARK and its FS affiliated companies have a long history of helping rebuild communities impacted by natural disasters and have been instrumental in supplying funds, manpower, and products in these tragic situations. Many GROWMARK System employees give time and resources on their own to help in disaster relief as well.
The Red Cross is providing immediate assistance to those affected most by the flooding. Its network of employees and volunteers are supplying food, shelter, emotional support, and more to those who need it most.
