PFSP receives donation from local business

Crawford Oil and Propane of Portage has made a pledge to the Portage Family Skate Park to donate $5,000 in the spring of 2018. With the matching grant from the Lenz Foundation, the donation will total $10,000.

“The Crawford family has always supported community projects in Portage,” Crawford Oil president Jon Crawford said. “Not only is the Crawford family a fan of skateboarding, but the discussion of a skate park has been in the works since I was in high school. One of our community financial commitments was coming to a close, and we felt a donation to the skate park was next best project to support.

“In addition, Kyle (Little, PFSP president) has been working so hard over the years and I applaud his persistence and dedication to completing all three phases of the skate park.”

The PFSP was awarded a matching grant from the Lenz Foundation. All money raised for the skate park addition through June 2018 will be matched, up to $37,5000.
