Janesville, Wisconsin – YWCA Rock County’s Board of Directors selected Blain Supply as the 2020 Corporate Award of Merit recipient.
The award recognizes businesses and organizations in Rock County that work to improve the quality of life in the community. Recipients of this award also must serve as role models and support policies, practices and attitudes in the advancement of women.
Blain Supply, corporate headquarters for Blain’s Farm & Fleet, regularly gives back to the community through fundraisers and support of nonprofits. To date, Blain’s Farm & Fleet has raised more than $5 million for the American Heart Association, contributed countless dollars to local FFA and 4-H scholarship programs and each Christmas, the company donates toys to children in need throughout the communities it serves.
Blain Supply’s President & CEO Jane Blain Gilbertson accepted the nomination on behalf of the Janesville-based company (photo attached; caption information: YWCA Rock County Executive Director, Angela Moore and YWCA Rock County Development Director Lori Kokes Present Corporate Award of Merit to Jane Blain Gilbertson, President & CEO of Blain Supply.)
“This community is so important to me because I was lucky enough to grow up here, raise my family here, and continue to lead a business in this wonderful place,” said Gilbertson. It is truly an honor to be recognized by such a great local organization like the YWCA. They have such a positive impact on our community and we at Blain’s Farm and Fleet are so happy to support them.”
