  1. One of our H4H fundraisers this year is the “Pink Toilet Brigade”. We have painted a toilet flourescent pink and have placed it at one person’s home. It stays in there yard until they make a donation to our H4H campaign. Once they do this, they get to choose who’s yard it goes to next. So far, we have had a great response to this….the toilet has moved 21 times in 10 days. It has been a great way to get the community involved and have a little bit of fun. CHS Drayton, ND group

  2. We held our first of 3 Cajun Boil & Mouse Race last night! We had a sold out crowd and served Cajun food to 400 people. Then we auctioned 15 mice, their new owners gave them a name and cheered them on as they raced. There was some pretty entertaining names given to these mice. We had ‘Sparky’, ‘Elsa’, ‘How we gonna pay for this’, ‘Congo’ , ‘Barbie’, and more! It was a ton of fun for a great cause! It was a huge success as we raised a total of $13,080! What an incredible honor to be a part of such a great program and such generous communities!

  3. On March 13, we had a very successful Get Pumped for Harvest for Hunger event at our three gas stations: New London Travel Plaza, Wild Rose C-store and Larsen Country Store. Our employees volunteered by serving food, selling baked goods, cooking food, and of course, pumping gas, washing windshields and serving people at the pumps. We received a lot of great comments from people that enjoyed the event and were glad to help a good cause. We also had many amazing desserts for the bake sale. From all three locations, we raised more than $3,000 between food, baked goods, and gas tip money.
    The employee/division coin fundraising war was another good way to raise funds for Harvest for Hunger. From our six locations, New London Main Office, Center Valley, Readfield, Weyauwega, Larsen and Wild Rose, we raised $783.11.

  4. We at CHS in Harrisburg, Oregon decided to try an Employee BBQ this year as part of our fundraising efforts, we are a small location so this wasn’t the majority of our donations by any means, but this enabled more of the employee’s to get involved. On two seperate days we offered BBQ’d hamburgers and all beef hot dogs for a donation of $5 per lunch, that included a bag of chips, a can of soda and potato salad. Or for $7 you could get a 2 hamburger/hot dog lunch. Our plant manager was our grill master and always does a great job. Because we aren’t a large facility, we do several things to raise funds, and luckily we have some very generous vendors, so we call on them for their support too and because we do business together they are always receptive to our plea for support.. Between the BBQ and the Vendor donations we raised $1646.83. We are already working on our ideas for next year!

    CHS Sunprairie of Bowbells decided to do something a little different this year. Previous years we have done a lunch and silent auction and wanted something a little different that would include the community more. We decided to have a supper, silent auction and bicycle races. We were able to find 16 willing participants to ride in our obstacle course. These included members from our community as well as CHS employees. A lot of fun was had by all and we were able to raise over $10,000.00!!!!!

  6. CHS Connell Grain Moses Lake Marketing Group-held its 2016 3rd Annual Bowling for Hunger, we had 15 teams sign up to bowl. We held a silent auction and played the Pass the Hat Game with the Hat of Luck! We raised a total of $3,815.00 for this event. Thank you to all of the Donations and sponsors for making this event happen!

  7. We held our first of 3 Cajun Boil and mouse races on Friday March 9th. We had a great crowd show up to the event and support our cause. We sold 255 in just about 4 days and everyone had a blast at the races! We were able to raise a lot of money from the sale of the mice, 2 donated auction items, and other donations from the amazing community! We have 2 more coming up in the next 2 weeks and can’t wait to see how they end up!!
