Weyerhaeuser Foundation gives thousands to Stockert Youth Center


A local kids outreach has received a big donation to help with a new addition.

The Weyerhaeuser Foundation donated $10,000 to the Stockert Youth Center to help build a new multipurpose gym.

The donation will go to provide seating, pads and other needs for the interior of the gym.

Stockert representatives said they’re glad to the support of a longtime partner like Weyerhaeuser.

“It’s great.  We appreicate the big companies like that.  There’s not a lot of big companies in this area but they’ve been great,” said Center Director Debora Brockleman.

The center has now raised more than $268,000 of the $400,000 needed to complete the project.
