Plainwell, MI, Beef Production Facility:

American Heart Association

During the month of February 2018, our Plainwell beef facility showed its support for heart health by putting on weekly bake sales, encouraging team members to wear red and holding a “50/50 raffle,” in which one half of all raffle proceeds is donated to the American Heart Association (AHA), and the remaining half is given to a randomly-drawn team member. Together, Plainwell team members raised over $1,714 for AHA, which JBS USA matched for a total donation of $3,428.

Looking ahead, the Plainwell HR department is working to establish a web page for the facility’s partnership with AHA that will enable team members, family and friends to make donations online, see where they stand on the leaderboard and read the community’s shared personal stories on heart health.
