Farmers Union Insurance agents Neil and Nick Johnston of Wimbledon recently gave $1,000 to the Wimbledon Community Grocery in Wimbledon, N.D.

The Wimbledon Community Grocery is a nonprofit organization serving Wimbledon and the surrounding area seven days a week.

“Farmers Union Insurance believes in building stronger communities; it is part of our mission statement,” Neil said. “As other companies tend to leave small towns in rural North Dakota, we continue to grow in rural communities. We believe in rural North Dakota.”

Nick, who is Neil’s son, said the donation is part of Farmers Union Insurance’s annual giving program where it selects nonprofit organizations in various locations across the state.

“We believe that the Wimbledon Community Grocery is important to the continued vitality of our community, and we are pleased to make this year’s donation to them,” he said.

Steve Guscette, Wimbledon Community Grocery store manager, said the gift is earmarked for sidewalk and drainage work on the north side of the store building.

“Rain runoff and spring melt waters flow east, away from the city storm sewer drain,” he said. “It can get very icy on the north side of the building. We plan to do work so the water will move towards the drain.”
