Vendors and service providers we've used in North Dakota
Supporting worthy causes is part of who we are. We’ve provided emergency-related equipment for Elbowoods Memorial Healthcare Center. We’ve contributed to the Four Bears Community playground and bought a van for the Boys and Girls Club of the Three Affiliated Tribes. We’ve also provided support to the Three Affiliated Tribes Fire Management Program, Employee Appreciation Day and the Red Sage Organization for economic and community development. Plus, we made a major contribution to the North Dakota Housing Incentive Fund to help build affordable housing. We want to be difference-makers in the community.
We’re committed to the environment in North Dakota. We helped launch an industry cooperative to protect Lake Sakakawea from the risk of spills.
