For the past several years Central Plains Coop has participated in a matching grant with CoBank. This year Central Plains Coop donated $1000 to both the Gaylord and Athol Fire Departments, with CoBank giving each department $2,500. Central Plains Coop has patrons and employees that are on both fire departments and depend on them to protect property and lives. “We are thankful for the work that these two departments do for us. It is important to us that we help maintain those departments” stated Sean Cravens, Central Plains Coop Manager.

CoBank believes that improving local communities is important. The grant funds given to both fire departments will go towards updating equipment or adding equipment to meet the needs of the community.
