Disaster Relief – West, Texas

The recent fire and explosion at the West Fertilizer Co., in West, Texas, killed an unknown number of people and devastated large sections of the town.

Nearly all the customers at our Waco, Texas, WinField Service Center were impacted by the explosion and fire. Additionally, a number of our member co-ops were also impacted.

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide assistance to our employees and members in need, the Land O’Lakes Foundation will donate $100,000 in cash, product and volunteer support. We will provide an immediate $40,000 donation in cash through a direct grant and matching funds to employees and members who donate to the American Red Cross and Salvation Army to support the recovery efforts in West, Texas. You can click here to donate. The Foundation will also donate $50,000 in food through Feeding America to the West, Texas community.

Additionally, we will provide volunteer opportunities for employees and member co-ops from the affected area to help with rebuilding and clean-up efforts during the next several weeks. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by this tragedy. If you have questions, please contact the Land O’Lakes Foundation or Community Relations:  [email protected]
