Dart Container Corporation Tuesday celebrated 50 years in business.
The maker of foam cups, bowls and lids got its start in Michigan. But the Quitman plant opened in 1997 with seventeen employees. It now has over 200 workers in Clarke County.
In honor of its 50th anniversary, Dart will be awarding grants to schools and non-profit organizations in communities where it has locations. The deadline for applications is June 1, 2010.
Details of how to apply for the grants are available at Dart's Web site. A link is provided below.
