CHS Inc. announced yesterday it will contribute $1.1 million to North Dakota flood relief efforts.
CHS is contributing $1 million in flood relief to North Dakota communities impacted by recent severe flooding. In addition, the CHS Foundation, an independent, private foundation supported by CHS Inc., is contributing $50,000 to the American Red Cross to aid in flood relief efforts. The company is making an additional $50,000 corporate contribution for direct support to the nearly two dozen CHS employees whose homes have been damaged by severe flooding in the Minot area.
“We recognize the significant challenges faced by so many individuals and communities impacted by the recent flooding,” said Carl Casale, CHS president and CEO. “We hope these contributions will help those affected by this disaster as they begin to recover and restore their homes, farms and businesses.”
CHS and the CHS Foundation will match contributions by CHS employees/retirees and member-owners. Matching contributions must be received by July 29, 2011. For more information see www.chsinc.com.

“We are very grateful that CHS and other companies in North Dakota are recognizing the severity of this flood disaster and are stepping up with generous contributions,” Dalrymple said.
“We hope these contributions will help those affected by this disaster as they begin to recover and restore their homes, farms and businesses,” Casale said.
