Valley United giving hearts

Valley United employees, from left, Abby Adams, A.J. Andresen and Zach Wright pose in front of a Giving Hearts Day trailer that will be loaded with food and supplies as part of the company’s eight-city, two-state food drive.

Representatives from Valley United Co-op will be kicking off an eight-city, two-week food drive to help communities in eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota starting Wednesday, Jan. 25.

A.J. Andresen, grain operations manager for the Reynolds-based grain and agronomy center, presented plans for the multi-state food drive to members of the Hillsboro Business Association Jan. 11.

“Ideally, we would love to fill up a trailer with food multiple times,” Andresen told a dozen HBA members gathered inside the Hillsboro Vets Club for their monthly meeting.

“We’ve already had some big commitments that have been made for donations.”
