St. Mary's Awarded Funds from Alceco
St. Mary’s School in Storm Lake was recently awarded matching grants from Alceco, a farmer-owned cooperative, and the Land O’Lakes Foundation.
The organization was awarded a total of $300, which will be used toward the cost of purchasing new computers for the school, with the goal of increasing students’ access to technology and advance the STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, Math) curriculum.
Albert City Elevator, A Cooperative (Alceco), dates back to 1925. The original Farmers Elevator Company was created as a stock company in 1905 and reorganized as a cooperative 20 years later. Today, Alceco continues to thrive as the farmer-owned cooperative partner of Ag Partners, L.L.C. The Land O’ Lakes Foundation match program matches dollar-for-dollar the cash donation of member cooperatives. For more information on Alceco, visit www.alceco.com.
