Sinclair Tractor Raises $600,000 for Food Banks

Think back to Saturday, June 24th, 2023. Many were probably relaxing on their couches, mowing the lawn, or enjoying a beautiful day outside. Sinclair Tractor was celebrating their 25th anniversary at McMillan Park in Mt. Pleasant and working towards an important cause while doing so.

Over 10,000 customers flocked to Mt. Pleasant to join in the celebration, which included food, live music, and a way to give back to the food banks in the communities Sinclair Tractor serves.

Thanks to the generosity of Sinclair Tractor employees, customers, suppliers and friends, the tractor dealership’s 25th anniversary raised $600,000 to support food banks serving southeast Iowa, western Illinois and northern Missouri. Those food banks include Food Bank of Iowa, HACAP Food Reservoir, Northeast Iowa Food Bank, River Bend Food Bank and The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri.

“We are thrilled to receive this generous donation from Sinclair Tractor, which will impact countless lives,” said Food Bank of Iowa CEO Michelle Book. “We are honored that so many different community members came together to contribute to this gift and invest in ending hunger throughout the region.”

“Celebrating 25 years with our employees, customers and suppliers was wonderful,” said Sinclair Tractor CEO Bob Sinclair. “But leveraging our company’s milestone to combat hunger in our corner of the world made it magical.”
