Community & Sponsorship
Yenda Producers Co-operative Society has been proudly associated with the Riverina community since the 1920s. We have a long history of support for local charities, schools, sporting groups and educational foundations. We see this as a way of contributing and giving back to the community where most of our customers and staff live and work. As an extension of this philosophy we encourage our staff to become involved in local causes, community and sporting events. In addition to ongoing sponsorship, we provide support to groups and projects every quarter.
HOW MANY GROUPS HAVE WE SUPPORTED?
Spring update: This past quarter Yenda Producers and Spencer & Bennett have given support to: Murrumbidgee Regional High School (Griffith site), Group 20 Referees, Southern Valleys Cotton, Tharbogang Public School, The Barellan Show, MND Bridge Climb, Spring in the Springs, and the Weethalle Show.
