Governor Dayton recognizes Cargill as a Yellow Ribbon Company
Minneapolis-based Cargill was recognized as a Yellow Ribbon company during a Yellow Ribbon Proclamation ceremony at Cargill’s Whitney MacMillan Auditorium in Hopkins, Minnesota on July 9, 2014.
The Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Proclamation recognizes the combined efforts of key areas within a company to support service members, veterans and military families and enable successful transition into the workplace for those who are returning from deployments.
“The men and women of the Minnesota National Guard, other U.S. Forces, and their families, have earned our admiration and appreciation. They have also earned our continuing assistance,” said Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton. “I thank Cargill for joining over 200 Yellow Ribbon cities, counties, and businesses, who have committed to support our Minnesota heroes, when they return home.”
In addition to the proclamation, Cargill re-signed the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve’s Statement of Support, further solidifying their commitment to supporting the service members Cargill employs.
