Mountain West Bank, a division of Glacier Bank, has donated $30,000 to the Salvation Army to support the construction of a new, expanded Salvation Army campus in West Boise. The new campus will be located off Emerald and Maple Grove and will include a community center, school program for pregnant and parenting teens, child care center, auditorium/chapel, gymnasium, commercial kitchen and cafeteria, administrative offices and multipurpose athletic fields.
“Since 1867 the Salvation Army has provided so many crucial services to people in need in our community, and we are proud and honored to be able to support them in this new, exciting endeavor,” said Dan Price, Mountain West Bank Community Banking president.
The expanded facilities are expected to more than double the capacity of Salvation Army’s school program for pregnant and parenting teens, and increase the total capacity for case management and assistance programs. Initial conservative estimates show that with the school and community center there will be 88,000 visits to the new campus in the first year alone.
