Construction of the American State Bank Sports Complex will be boosted by a $50,000 grant from the Pella Rolscreen Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Pella Corporation.
The foundation announced the award this week, offering the $50,000 grant to help with construction of Sioux Center’s indoor turf facility, which will provide a year-round space for a variety of athletic, recreational and wellness activities. The shared project between the City and Dordt University.
“We’re grateful for Pella’s commitment to support quality of life and economic growth in Sioux Center, said Sioux Center City Manager Scott Wynja. “This facility will add to opportunities for residents and continue to bring people here to work, play, study and live.”
Construction on the 118,000-square-foot American State Bank Sports Complex could begin this March or April, looking toward completion in 2023. The facility, which will offer opportunities for indoor soccer, softball, wellness activities, youth programs, and more, is predicted to draw about 200,000 people a year.
The Pella Rolscreen Foundation provides grants and works to shape the communities in which Pella Corporation team members live and work. Pella Corporation opened its Sioux Center manufacturing facility in 2000.
