The school district's foundation got $10,000 from the John Deere Des Moines Works. The funds will be used for grants and scholarships. Two parent teacher organizations each received $5,000 as well.
The Westwood school will use the funds to complete the purchase of visual display projectors. The Ashland Ridge site will apply the money to either build another computer lab or create a literacy program.
"Ashland Ridge already has a lab, but it is always being used for students during instruction," Cindy Shannon, Ashland Ridge PTO treasurer, told the paper. "The additional lab will allow them outside media time."
Every year the John Deere Des Moines Works program donates funds to different community interests in the Ankeny. Roughly $330,000 is given by the company annually.
John Deere Credit recently donated more than $6,000 to the Findley Elementary School. The funds will be used to support a reading program and purchase equipment.
