The Terracon Foundation announced a $3,000 Community Grant to the City of Ashville.

Daniel Gossett, group manager in Terracon’s Birmingham office, championed the grant application. The grant funds will be used to update the city’s parks by installing a gazebo near the splash pad to provide shade during the summer months.

“As a longtime resident of Ashville, I am honored to recommend the city for a Terracon Foundation grant,” Gossett said. “The gazebo will provide additional shade so that more families can use the covered space for protection from the sun while utilizing the city park amenities. This will promote outdoor recreation, exercise potential, appreciation of the outdoors, nature education, and generally contribute to the betterment of Ashville’s citizens.”

To date, the Foundation has granted more than $2 million to community organizations, universities, dependents of employees, and for disaster relief efforts. The Terracon Foundation encourages employees to submit grant requests for organizations focused on education and the built and natural environments.

The Terracon Foundation was established with a goal to reach out and become a real part of the lives of Terracon employees and the communities where they live and work.
