Pilgrim’s Investment Will Fund Outdoor Classroom and Eating Space
An investment from Pilgrim’s will build a pavilion that will serve as outdoor classroom space, as well as provide a place for students to eat outside – of particular importance during the global pandemic, as it allows students to practice social distancing.
Partner: Russellville City Schools
Target Completion Date: TBD
There is no doubt that COVID-19 has taken a toll on Alabamians, but because of strong partners like Pilgrim’s, we are bringing much-needed relief to communities around our state. Pilgrim’s Hometown Strong Initiative is not only helping local communities respond to the ongoing pandemic, but it is also positioning us for a strong comeback and future. I am grateful for Alabama’s collaboration on this initiative and for the strong partner we have in Pilgrim’s. We will overcome this together.
