ADM Donates $2,000 to Cherokee Strip Land Rush Museum

09/20/2011
Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) has donated $2,000 to the Cherokee Strip Land Rush Museum in Arkansas City, Kan. The donation will support the Bill Baird Memorial Pioneer Farm and Garden.

 “ADM strives to make a positive difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Doug Goff, commercial manager, ADM Milling in Arkansas City. “We are proud to present this contribution to the Cherokee Strip Land Rush Museum and look forward to helping them educate our community on agricultural issues.”

The $2,000 check was presented to members of the museum’s board by Goff and Joe Woodard, plant manager of ADM’s Arkansas City facilities, during a check presentation ceremony held September 21 at the museum.

 The donation was given through ADM Cares. ADM Cares is a social investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress worldwide. The program comprises three distinct focus areas: supporting the responsible development of agriculture, improving the quality of life in ADM communities and fostering employee giving and volunteer activities. 

 ADM operates two flour mills in Arkansas City, employing 80 people. These facilities connect the harvest to the home by milling wheat into flour for the wholesale baking industry.
