Another $50,000 Donated To Turf Project

Sheldon, Iowa — Another generous donation has been made to the Sheldon Community Schools-Northwest Iowa Community College Turf Project.

North Star Community Credit Union has made a $50,000 contribution towards the turf facility upgrade.  The turf upgrade will be located on the current Sheldon Orab football field, and is a collaborative project between the Sheldon Community School District, Northwest Iowa Community College and the City of Sheldon.

The new playing surface will be used for the Orab football team, soccer program and the marching band.  Additionally, Northwest Iowa Community College will be utilizing the grounds when they begin their intercollegiate soccer program, which is slated to begin in Fall 2024.

Fundraising for the project began this summer, and has a goal to be completed by the end of December. Groundbreaking for the project is slated to begin next Spring 2022, with use by the Sheldon Community Schools in the Fall of 2022.

For more information on the project or to donate, contact Eric Maassen at the Sheldon CSD at 712- 324-2504 or Kristi Landis at NCC at 800-352-4907 ext. 164.
