JBS USA Donation Revitalizes Elkhart’s Tolson Center with Soccer Complex

This project will provide residents and families in Elkhart with a revitalized Tolson Center and Park, and will include funding for a new turf soccer complex. The Tolson Center itself will include developmental programming for youths and senior citizens, such as arts, music, theater, health and counseling services, reading programs, a resource center and more. The Park will contain basketball/futsal courts, play areas and the soccer complex.

Partner: Community Foundation of Elkhart County

Target Completion Date: Q3 2022

We are thrilled Plumrose USA has decided to invest in this important community project. We are optimistic the revitalization of the Tolson Center and Park will significantly improve the quality of life for the entire Elkhart community. The addition of a soccer complex to the park, including an artificial turf field with lighting for evening play, will be the centerpiece of the park renovations. Our thanks to Plumrose USA for making the lead gift to this key feature.
