Fowler company helps Selma Little League steel themselves against theft

The Fresno BeeFebruary 25, 2014 

After burglars stole $8,000 worth of equipment from Selma Little League last month, a Fowler company decided to donate a steel storage building, valued at $4,500, to help prevent supplies from being ransacked again.

Ron Heskett, chief executive officer of Borga Steel Buildings and Components, announced the donation Tuesday. The steel building will be used to securely store the league's field maintenance and game equipment.

"When we heard of this unfortunate theft, we wanted to make sure we did our part to help this organization," Heskett said. "The thought of Selma's Little League having to worry about the purchase of new equipment at the beginning of their new season was unthinkable to us."

"We are so thankful for Borga's support," said Little League Co-President Heather Escobedo. "We have recovered some of the items stolen, but had no way to secure them from future theft. The donation of this steel building will enable us to secure the equipment for our team."
