CHS Culture of Service
CHS employees are active volunteers where they live and work and participate in programs including CHS Days of Service, Harvest for Hunger and United Way Campaigns.
CHS Days of Service
More than 8,000 CHS employees each receive 16 hours of paid time every year to volunteer. Our employees live out the CHS Days of Service commitment by organizing group volunteer events and giving their individual time to support personal causes. In 2018, CHS employees donated nearly 23,000 hours through CHS Days of Service.
Making a Difference Together
“I love that CHS gives us the opportunity to volunteer as a team. It’s great to get together in a different environment knowing what we’re doing is helping local families in need.”
– Stefani Horne, CHS Elburn office coordinator.
CHS Harvest for Hunger
CHS Country Operations locations team up each year with local farmers to fight hunger in rural America. The annual food, grain and fund drive benefits local and regional food banks. Since 2011, the campaign has raised more than $6 million and 4.5 million pounds of food to help hungry families.
United Way Employee Giving Campaign
Many CHS locations organize United Way campaigns to benefit their local communities. CHS matches employee contributions with $1.50 for every dollar raised. In 2018, CHS and our employees raised $1.5 million for United Way programs.
