PORTLAND, Ore. — The Terracon Foundation recently awarded a community grant in the amount of $2,500 to the La Center Education Foundation. The grant will be used for repairs and renovations of the La Center School District’s softball and baseball fields.
The Terracon Foundation community grant supports local, nonprofit programs with active engagement of Terracon employees in communities where they live and work.
