Tyson Foods is showing their support to the Jones Center by donating $1 million to the Springdale facility. The money will be used for general operating expenses. In the past 10 years, Tyson Foods has given more than $3 million to the Jones Center. The gift announcement was made at the Jones Center Big Night gala Saturday evening where more than 400 supporters were present.
"The Jones Center is such a huge part of this community," said Russell Tooley, Tyson Foods' senior vice president of corporate and international human resources and a member of the Jones Trust board of directors. "By strengthening this community center, we are strengthening all of Northwest Arkansas, including the thousands of Tyson Foods' Team Members who live and work here."
