Luray, KS September 8, 2020 – Midway Coop announced today a $5,000 grant to The Russell County Free Fair Association. The funds will support the purchase of a refrigerated display case and ventilation and electrical work in the west beef barn.
 
“We’re proud to support this project as a way to strengthen the community and see it thrive,” says Midway Coop Office Manager, Craig Mans. “Projects like this are essential to enriching our rural area and the people who live here.”
 
In addition to the funds contributed by Midway Coop, the contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by a CHS Seeds for Stewardship grant, which helps cooperatives grow their impact locally. Together more than $5,000 will benefit The Russell County Free Fair Association.
 
“Cooperatives were founded on the principles of education, community involvement and cooperation,” says Midway Coop Office Manager, Craig Mans. “By combining resources, we are providing double the impact to our area and demonstrating the cooperative spirit.”
