The Slayton Fire Department has been awarded two checks totaling $10,000 — $5,000 from NCE and $5,000 from CoBank — to help purchase thermal imaging cameras.

“We’re delighted to be able to support an area volunteer fire department through CoBank’s grant program. The people that make up these departments volunteer their time to respond to fires and other emergencies requiring volunteer fire fighters, and we are proud of the work they do in the rural communities that we mutually serve,” said Adam Tromblay, NCE’s general manager.

The annual “Sharing Success” grant opportunity, capped at $10,000, is made possible by NCE, in partnership with CoBank — a national nonprofit cooperative bank owned by the rural American cooperatives it services, including NCE.

This year, CoBank established a $5 million fund to match charitable contributions made by its cooperative members. The matching grant program is designed to celebrate the vital role that cooperatives play in individual communities across the country.
