Cargill made a $10,000 donation to the Gainesville Fire Departments search and rescue program Thursday.

The check was presented to Chief Jerome Yarbrough by Cargill Superintendent Ethan Peterson. An announcement from the company said the donation is a symbol of recognition and appreciation for the search and rescue team's work in Gainesville, particularly its 2017 hurricane response efforts.

"The Cargill team in Gainesville also wanted to acknowledge the decades-long partnership between its facility and the fire department, dating back nearly 50 years to the plant’s opening in 1966," the announcement read.  "As an industrial facility, the Cargill plant values the specialty training and experience that the Gainesville Search and Rescue team provides. As such, the Search and Rescue team has been a strong source of support for Cargill’s Gainesville site, providing training and serving as first responders to emergency and rescue needs."
