Sanford Bemidji employees received a sweet donation from the Jake Bluhm State Farm Insurance Agency on Friday, April 10.

Made at Raphael's Bakery in downtown Bemidji, over 100 dozen doughnuts were delivered to all Sanford Bemidji departments and locations. The doughnuts were in appreciation for the hard work and sacrifice of Sanford Bemidji employees during the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We are so appreciative for the community and the support they are providing all health care workers and emergency workers across our region,” Sanford Bemidji said in a release.

Jake Bluhm is a 2008 and 2012 BSU graduate and former member of the BSU Beavers men's hockey team. He previously worked for Bemidji State as the director of annual giving for athletics and Beaver Pride coordinator before opening his downtown Bemidji insurance agency in 2014.

Bluhm is active in the community, volunteering for Bemidji State Athletics on the men's hockey alumni committee, the Boys and Girls Club of the Bemidji Area, the Bemidji Youth Hockey Association, the United Way of the Bemidji Area and more.
