Central Plains Co-op is here to serve our members with products and services that help build, feed and fuel individuals and communities. We are a different kind of business; being member-owned means that any profits are returned to our members and stay in the local community. We live where you live, work where you work and help grow the economy right here. We are your neighbours, and we make sustainable investments in the communities we share.
We know that our continued success depends on the strength of our community and we are committed to taking initiative in the communities we serve. This belief is the foundation of our Community Partnership program. This program strengthens the role we take in the communities where we do business by providing donations and sponsorships to organizations and by encouraging our Team Members to be involved in their communities.
Central Plains Co-op cares about the things that are important to you. We are proud to be a part of your community and are happy to lend a hand towards projects and events that are doing good things close to home.
Our Community Partnership program strengthens the communities where we do business by focusing our giving into specific sponsorships that most closely reflect our corporate values and strategies.
