Whittemore, IA – MaxYield Cooperative recently presented the Whittemore Fire Department with a contribution of $500. The funds will be used to improve the security lighting at the fire station building.

Melanie Elbert, client care leader at MaxYield in Whittemore, presented the checks to fire chief Eric Goodman and firefighter/EMT Brian Goodman.

MaxYield also presented the Whittemore fire department with $500 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.

“In 2008 MaxYield donated the land that the Whittemore fire station now sits on to the fire department,” said MaxYield client relations & communications leader Chad Meyer. “When the fire department is called in to service, it’s often at night or early in the morning when it’s dark. The new lighting outside the fire station will make it safer for the volunteer fire fighters and EMT’s when they respond to calls and it will improve the overall security around the building.”
