Bremer Giving

Bremer is known for giving – and one of those ways is through its local donations. In 2011, the Morris/Starbuck banks will give nearly $14,000 to local organizations and causes. Morris is part of the Alexandria charter, which is expected to give approximately $129,000 throughout the Alexandria, Breckenridge, Brandon, Fergus Falls, Morris, Starbuck and Wahpeton communities.

Two donations were recently awarded in Morris totaling $2,000. More details below.
