In an effort to combat hunger in its community, the Jennie O Turkey Store Faribault manufacturing plant donated $10,000 to the city’s St. Vincent de Paul Center Aug. 13. The Catholic-based, volunteer-run charitable organization provides food, clothing, furniture and financial aid to people in need.

This is the third consecutive year Jennie O, a division of Austin-based Hormel Foods Corporation, has donated funds to the charity.

“It is our privilege to team up with St. Vincent de Paul to help support the fight against hunger in our community,” said Rand Vergin, plant manager, in a statement.

The Faribault St. Vincent de Paul Society is a ministry of Divine Mercy parish.
