Sioux County Community Foundation Gives Out Over $126,000 In Grants To 23 Organizations

Ireton, Iowa — Several Sioux County projects and funds have received some money from a community foundation.

Sioux County Community Foundation officials tell us they recently awarded grants totaling over $126,000 in support of projects and programs throughout Sioux County. They tell us this brings the total grants awarded to over $1.6 million since the first grants were made in 2006.

Advisory Board Chair Maggie Landegent says, “The Sioux County Community Foundation is excited to be able to impact the quality of life and services for residents of Sioux County.”

Three organizations received the highest amount this round — $10,000. Those organizations were the City of Hospers for the South Side Park Ball Diamond Lights project, the Hawarden Fire & Ambulance Association for firefighting equipment, and the Sioux Center Fire Department for a Rapid Intervention Team or “RIT” Pack. (According to the International Association of Fire Chiefs, a RIT is a designated crew that will serve as a stand-by rescue team for personnel and be available for the immediate search and rescue of any missing, trapped, injured or unaccounted for fire fighter(s).)

Two organizations received $8000 grants. They were the City of Chatsworth for a park update, and the Granville Fire & EMS Association for a ventilation fan and wildland firefighting gear.
