JBS USA Donation Builds Score Boards, Message Boards, Provides Food for Beardstown
Part of this investment will provide updated scoreboards for all indoor and outdoor sports activities, an updated main school message board for students and community members, a new community message board for the Positive Behavior Reinforcement Program, and part of the investment is a cash donation to the Tiger Food Pantry. The goal of these investments is to provide improved communications avenues for families and students in the community, and to alleviate hunger in school-aged children of Beardstown – a need that increased during the pandemic.
