Five Star’s employee Volunteer Time Off program enables full-time employees to be paid for up to eight hours’ community volunteer work, as our schedule allows. So far employees have helped at local county fairs, schools, community days and churches.

Depending on the recipient and/or designated use of the funds being donated, Five Star can apply to our regional cooperatives (CoBank, Land O Lakes, and CHS) for matching funds. This is another example of the cooperative system benefits.
