JBS and UFCW provided $1,000 donations to all six Marshalltown Community School District elementary schools on January 3. It was the second straight year these donations have been made to the six elementary schools from JBS and UFCW.

For the second straight year, JBS and the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 1149 provided $1,000 donations to each of the six elementary schools in the Marshalltown Community School District.  The money comes from a multicultural fund at JBS and the UFCW, which is typically used to support the community.

Mike Graves of the UFCW and Stacey Santillan, director of Human Resources at JBS, delivered the checks to all six elementary school principals on January 3.

“It’s something that we want to do for the community,” Graves said.

Santillan said since many of the JBS employees have children that attend the schools, this was a way to support those schools. The appreciative principals talked about using the funds for technology, literacy curriculum, playground equipment and more.
