Cascade Steel works to improve the lives of local citizens in many ways

Scholarships, donations improve many local lives

As building a strong foundation goes, it’s difficult to beat the high quality products manufactured by Cascade Steel Rolling Mills, Inc. right here in the Yamhill Valley. But the com­pany’s well-known dedication to quality products may well be matched by its commitment to bettering the lives of those in local communities.

As one of the region’s largest employers, Cas­cade Steel recognizes the importance of improving the local communities where its employees live and work. Since 2007, Cascade Steel has do­nated nearly half a million dollars to local organiza­tions, schools, programs and charities. Cascade Steel employees enthusiastically par­ticipate in regular volunteer opportuni­ties because they know the value of the company’s commitment to the future — they’ve seen firsthand how their efforts benefit the Yamhill Valley.

As a member of the Schnitzer Steel family, Cascade Steel builds on Schnitzer’s long history of nationally-recognized giving. Locally, Cascade Steel has supported the Yamhill County Fair Livestock Pen Project, the McMin­nville High School welding program, the Drew Ottley Memorial Skate Park, the popular after-school Kids on the Block program, Head Start of Yamhill County, the McMinnville Education Foundation, Future Farmers of America, the Virginia Garcia Health Center and YCAP.

Outside the Yamhill Valley, Cascade Steel Rolling Mills is globally known as a manufacturer of top-grade products like coiled reinforcing bar, wire rod, merchant bar and other specialty materials, all produced from recycled scrap metal at McMin­nville’s state-of-the-art electric arc furnace steel mill.
