On Friday, February 14, Pottawattamie County Community Foundation received a large gift of $451,000 from the Charles E. Lakin Foundation to renovate its existing structure, and to build an addition to double its space, which will include a 30-person gathering room. The building will be renamed the Florence M. and Charles E. Lakin Center for Community Giving.

"Supporting the expansion and renovation will enhance the capabilities for exploring and serving more needs in the area. A strong and solid presence in Council Bluffs will bolster the image of PCCF and through that, will attest to the strength and resiliency of the community." - The Lakin Family
