Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Valley United Co-op takes pride in its community involvement. The communities we serve include Ada, Climax and Halstad, MN, as well as Buxton, Hatton, Hillsboro, Mayville, Portland and Reynolds, ND. At Valley United, our employees and board feel a deep sense of responsibility to be good corporate citizens and neighbors in the towns where we operate, because it’s the right thing to do and because we live in these communities too. It is in that spirit that our cooperative has long been a long time financial supporter of local initiatives, including Dollars for Scholars, fundraiser walks and golf outings to raise money for Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease research, and providing Shrine Circus tickets for Central Valley kids.  We have also partnered with Land O’Lakes, who matches our contributions dollar-for-dollar, to fund our local fire and rescue departments, purchase iPads for local schools, bleachers and baseball equipment for local youth sports teams.
