Supporting School Children
In January 2012, Cargill employees from the Animal Nutrition business unit again tapped their own resources and teamed with McDonald’s to host a “First Day of School” afternoon kickoff for a local native village.
Employees came together to pack backpacks with school supplies, uniforms and shoes – a first for this local village – to ensure the first day back to school was special for both children and parents.
Cargill partnered with McDonald’s to host lunch, games and prizes for the children, in a first day of school to remember. Capping off the event, with local villagers watching, each child received their pack of supplies and was wished well by school representatives, native tribe officials and parents.
