Ashley Donation

Ashley Furniture Industries has made a big donation to a flood prevent project in Arcadia.

WXOW TV reports the donation totaled $300,000 to help prevent future flooding in Arcadia. 

Ashley's donation will help the city complete its 1.5 million dollar project, which involves constructing a new channel for Myers Valley Creek.

When the creek flooded in September of 2010, it caused millions of dollars' worth of damage.  

Construction of the new channel began last May when 125,000 cubic yards of material were excavated to form the new channel.
