The Pella Rolscreen Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Pella Corporation, has awarded a $50,000 grant for the American State Bank Sports Complex.
The facility will provide a year-round space for a variety of athletic, recreational and wellness activities. The project is a joint venture between the city of Sioux Center and Dordt University.
