Southern Plains Co-op uses Do Some Good to power their application forms.

Southern Plains Co-op like other community-minded businesses, receives numerous requests for community support. Please allow a minimum 2 weeks to review your requests and respond. Southern Plains Co-op works hard to assist in as many community organizations as possible, however due to the high volume of requests received, not all worthwhile proposals will be approved. Such response does not reflect upon the value of your organization and the valuable service you provide.
