Minnesota Energy Resources employees care deeply about the communities where they live and serve. That’s why last quarter, employees chose to donate $2,500 to two charities of their choice.

The donations are part of the Minnesota Energy Resources Safety Charity Challenge, a companywide program to encourage employees to live and work safely while positively impacting their local communities. Each quarter, employees who meet their safety goals have the opportunity to direct a contribution toward one of several charities.

Last quarter there was a tie vote, so Minnesota Energy Resources is splitting a $2,500 donation between Kids n’ Kinship and the North Country Trail Association.

Kids n Kinship works with Minnesota schools and communities to provide mentoring to children and youth in need of support, and the North Country Trail Association helps to build, maintain, protect and promote the North Country National Scenic Trail.

These organizations are just two examples of the dozens of nonprofit organizations Minnesota Energy Resources is proud to support every year.
