The company donated that sum plus the funds raised through bar sales at their 50th anniversary celebration for the Belle Plaine mine to the Moose Jaw charity.
During the 50th anniversary celebration for the mine at Mosaic Place on Friday, the company presented a $15,000 cheque and committed all of the proceeds of the event's bar sales to Hunger in Moose Jaw, a charitable organization in the Friendly City that has long been a beneficiary of their generosity.
