A $100,000 grant through a large local employer will help build Sioux Center’s new Fire Station No. 2.
The Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Perdue Farms, awarded a $100,000 grant on Feb. 13 to help the City of Sioux Center construct the new Station No. 2 for the volunteer fire department. The new facility will replace the current Station No. 2 in Sioux Center located about a mile from Perdue’s pork operation, which is located outside city limits.
“We are extremely excited and grateful for the generous donation from the Perdue Foundation in support of the expansion of Fire Station No. 2,” said Sioux Center City Manager Scott Wynja. “The Perdue plant, although not located in the city limits, is within the service territory of the Sioux Center Fire Department and a vital and supportive business for the community.”
