(News/Talk 1480 WHBC) – They’re calling it “transformational” at Commquest.

It’s the largest gift ever in the 100-year legacy of the organization.

The Timken Foundation is giving $1.6 million to the Canton-based organization.

It’s “transformational” because the funding can be used to update the 19 buildings in the system, with operating revenues targeting programs and services.

The foundation calls Commquest’s work “critical” to the community.
