Archer Daniels Midland Company’s (NYSE: ADM) Arkansas City milling facility today donated $5,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cowley County to help fund the Start Something Big program, which recruits, screens and matches mentors with area children. 

“ADM strives to make a positive difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Doug Goff, commercial manager at ADM’s Arkansas City facility. “We’re proud to make this donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cowley County to help foster important mentoring relationships with children throughout our county.”

During a ceremony held at the company’s Arkansas City facility, ADM presented Community Director Debi Clark of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cowley County with a $5,000 check.

The donation was given through ADM Cares, the company’s corporate social-investment program that directs funds to initiatives and organizations around the world that drive meaningful social, economic and environmental progress. 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 supports initiatives that help create a better future for our children,” said Joe Woodard, plant manager for ADM’s Arkansas City facility. “Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cowley County strives to make a positive difference in the lives of children throughout the area, and we are proud to support their efforts.”
