In November, Pilgrim’s announced a $715,000 investment in De Queen, Ark., to support the community’s future through the company’s Hometown Strong program. Pilgrim’s worked with local leaders to determine where the funds could best help meet immediate and longer-term community needs. Today, the company announced it is contributing $480,000 to partner with the City of De Queen and build a splash pad at Herman Dierks Memorial Park. The state-of-the-art splash pad will provide outdoor entertainment for the community, and construction will begin in the first quarter of 2021. “We believe this project will allow our team members and neighbors to enjoy a fun outdoor recreation activity and provide a place for families and friends to come together and socialize,” said Eddie Halter, Pilgrim’s De Queen/Nashville Complex Manager.
