JBS Provides $50,000 to the Legacy Fields Project


The Ottumwa Legacy Foundation announced a $50,000 grant from JBS to benefit the Legacy Fields Project.

The grant will help transform the Greater Ottumwa Park Central Addition into a brand-new, state-of-the-art soccer complex. The multi-million-dollar project aims to make playing safer and more accessible for everyone, while also breathing new life into the riverfront area.

“JBS values teamwork, both within our company and the communities we serve,” shares Zenna Boyd, Human Resource Director. “The Legacy Fields Project aligns with our commitment to fostering well-being and creating inclusive spaces for people of all ages and backgrounds. We envision this complex becoming a hub for families, friends, and neighbors to connect and enjoy healthy activities.”

JBS’s $50,000 grant will directly impact the project’s infrastructure by funding a portion of the field lights. The new field lights will allow more opportunities for those to play.

“JBS has continued to support community projects that are important to their employees,” says Kelly Genners, President of the Legacy Foundation. “We are excited not only for this important monetary gift but also for the support the entire JBS organization has shown in the project overall.”
