On Jan. 16, 382 food items, donated by Crop Production Services, located just north of Bowling Green, were delivered to the Bowling Green Hope Center. Joe Klott, who manages the facility, wanted to give back to the community. As a community service project he chose to do a food drive at the company’s division Christmas party. This year, the Bowling Green CPS location was chosen to host the Western Illinois division Christmas Party, which took place on Jan. 11 in Quincy, Ill.. Each employee was asked to bring a non-perishable food item. Along with 14 other branches in the division, which consisted of over 250 employees and spouses from north eastern Missouri and west central Illinois, they were able to accomplish this for our community. Crop Production employees Troy Winchell, Jim Hearn, Larry Morrison, Mike Dameron, and Tyler Ricks helped unload the items.
