Girl Scouts of Silver Sage Council received $25,000 from Mountain West Bank, the Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, and Glanbia Foods in August.

A $5,000 grant from Mountain West will be used for the Girl Scouts’ Visions program for low-income, at-risk girls. Visions is a free, in-school program for girls ages nine to 12 at 19 schools across the Treasure Valley.

The Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation awarded the council with $5,000 for maintenance and repairs at Camp Alice Pittenger in McCall. More than 700 Girl Scouts and 200 adults across southern Idaho attend this camp each year.

Glanbia Foods in Twin Falls granted the council $15,000 for Girl Scout programs and activities for 415 girls in the Magic Valley. Funding was awarded through the 22nd Annual Glanbia Charity Challenge Golf Tournament held August 17.

Girl Scouts of Silver Sage Council is a girl-led youth organization that serves more than 4,000 girls throughout southern Idaho and in parts of Northern Nevada and Eastern Oregon.
