Moorhead Factory Awards Three $5,000 Community Roots Grants

American Crystal Sugar Company’s Moorhead factory recently presented three $5,000 grants to area nonprofit organizations.

As part of the Company’s Community Roots Giving Program, factory management reviewed applications from many nonprofit agencies. The selection committee selected three grant recipient organizations because of their focus in the areas of education, hunger and/or emergency services agencies.

American Crystal actively supports the communities where our 4,000-plus employees and shareholders live. Through our Community Roots Giving Program, we’re investing in the organizations and communities that make the Red River Valley stronger and more vibrant.
