MaxYield & Land O’Lakes Foundation Boost Whittemore Legion Project

Members of the Whittemore American Legion accepted $2000 in total contributions from MaxYield Cooperative and Land O’Lakes Foundation. Accepting the contributions from Melanie Elbert, were (L to R) William C. Elbert, Mick Zimmerman, and Charlie Wise.

MaxYield Cooperative recently presented the Seely-Walsh Post #425 of the American Legion in Whittemore with a contribution of $1000. The funds will be used to update the flooring inside the legion building.

Melanie Elbert, client care leader at MaxYield in Whittemore, presented the checks to members of the legion.

MaxYield also presented the legion with $1000 in matching funds from Land O’Lakes Foundation. Land O’Lakes Foundation helps rural communities prosper by donating resources that develop and strengthen organizations dedicated to Hunger, Education and Community. Since 1997, the Foundation has awarded millions of dollars in grants through a variety of giving programs.

“The Legion is a cornerstone in the Whittemore community,” said MaxYield client relations & communications leader Chad Meyer. “In addition to the many ways they support military veterans in our local area, the Legion building hosts numerous events and fundraisers. We are happy to help them with their flooring project.”
