In August, JBS announced a $2.5 million investment in Beardstown, Ill., to support the community’s future through the company’s Hometown Strong program. JBS has been working with local leaders to determine where the funds can best help meet immediate and longer-term community needs. Today, the company announced it is partnering with the Friends of Beardstown Community Parks District to build the community’s first soccer field. The JBS Soccer Complex will provide recreation activities for youth and adults to enjoy. The $446,000 investment includes bathrooms, concession stands, lights, turf, a scoreboard and handicap accessibility.
