Organizers with Angel's Park have hit paydirt -- almost literally.

Weeks ago, Dona Frickson told KWWL the park was in desperate need of donations of topsoil, to the tune of 10 truckloads. Now, Frickson said several local businesses have stepped up, and the soil is now in place in the park.

"We hope to be seeding grass in the near future," Frickson said. "It's coming along really good."

The park is a memorial to those lost in the Cedar Valley, including murdered Evansdale cousins Lyric and Elizabeth.

Frickson thanks for the following businesses for donating time, labor, or other resources: PCI, Basic Materials Corp., Aspro, Benton's, Triple D, Quam, and Walters. She also thanks 'Only 1 Earth' for donated 500 feet of waddle for erosion control.

"These companies stepped up to transform the island," Frickson wrote on Facebook.
