Roquette Inc. donates to Keokuk Neighborhood Initiative
Roquette awarded $35,000 to the Keokuk Neighborhood Initiative.
Keokuk's largest employer made that announcement at a news conference Monday.
That money will go towards revitalizing Keokuk neighborhoods and increasing diversity and housing availability.
"Better opportunities for people coming in, better housing options because we are often looking for people to recruit into the area and have them move and live here and work," said Roquette Representative Melinda Boyer.
Boyer says the company hopes to get the ball rolling so other area businesses will step forward to help beautify Keokuk.
