AgGrandize would like to extend a huge thank you to Floyd and Gayle Dowell and their organization PHI for donating the grain bins and then their matching donation for the cost of transport to Kyrgyzstan. We also would like to recognize all the volunteers from Mound City and Fort Scott, Kansas who joined AgGrandize in this effort. The project was executed better than we could have ever hoped. AgGrandize would also like to thank Luke Haines at Roofmasters for donating the use of the telehandler and Kyle for dropping it off at the bin site. A big thanks goes out to Sandin Slaubaugh at Reif Welding and Construction for the use and operation of the crane.
The dollar amount is figured to represent the value of the in-kind donations contributed to complete this project.
Osh & Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
Provide two 10,000 bushel and one 25,000 bushel grain to Natural Agro.
Bin tear-down took place in Kinsley, KS on June 29-30, 2018. Rebuild in Osh, Kyrgyzstan on a TBD date.
AgGrandize gathered a group of 40 volunteers to partner with Oasis Agro by providing a work force to disassemble 3 grain bins located in Kinsley, KS. The grain bins have been dismantled and are to be packed into a shipping container and shipped to Kyrgyzstan. Upon arrival, a second team of volunteers will travel to Kyrgyzstan to rebuild the bins for use of Natural Agro (see current Projects for more information.)
