Dakota Electric Association, along with CoBank, one of its lenders, recently donated $10,000 to 360 Communities. Dakota Electric’s $5,000 donation was matched by CoBank through the company’s “Sharing Success” grant program.

Dakota Electric’s board of directors and CoBank’s Cliff Bolstad and Rachel Hanson, presented the check to Sal Mondelli, president and CEO of 360 Communities, and Laurie Bolin, development director, during a recent board meeting.

Mondelli thanked Dakota Electric’s board for the donation and Dakota Electric’s support over the years. 360 Communities provides assistance to more than 17,000 individuals each year with a variety of programs throughout the area, including domestic violence shelters, resource centers, food shelves and more. This is the third year Dakota Electric’s donation was doubled through CoBank’s grant program.
