A tractor dealership helped to raise over half a million dollars to help fight hunger.
While celebrating its 25th anniversary earlier this year, Sinclair Tractor employees, customers, suppliers, and friends raised $600,000 to support food banks serving southeast Iowa, western Illinois and northern Missouri. Those food banks include Food Bank of Iowa, HACAP Food Reservoir, Northeast Iowa Food Bank, River Bend Food Bank and The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri.
“We are thrilled to receive this generous donation from Sinclair Tractor, which will impact countless lives,” said Food Bank of Iowa CEO Michelle Book. “We are honored that so many different community members came together to contribute to this gift and invest in ending
hunger throughout the region.”
In addition to Sinclair Tractor, other key donors to the initiative included Quality Ag Service, Michael Walker Advertising, Cookies BBQ, John Deere, the John Deere Foundation, Brandt Agricultural Products, AGI/Westfield, Unverferth, Tractorhouse, the Iowa Auctioneers Association, Farm Credit Services and many other caring individuals and companies.
“Celebrating 25 years with our employees, customers and suppliers was wonderful,” said Sinclair Tractor CEO Bob Sinclair. “But leveraging our company’s milestone to combat hunger in our corner of the world made it magical.”
