SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A local business is celebrating 100 years in Siouxland by donating to the United Way of Siouxland.

The Gleeson Family Foundation is celebrating the family business, Klinger Company’s milestone anniversary with a $1 million gift to the local organization.  The gift comes in the form of an endowment, meaning it will continue to provide funding for years to come.
