The Andersons Inc. Charitable Foundation has approved a grant to 4-H Camp Palmer in the amount of $10,000. These funds will be used to support the replacement of a new swimming pool at camp.
The Anderson Foundation strives to enhance the quality of life in communities in which the donor company, The Andersons, Inc. has business operations.
The Friends of Camp Palmer presented the 4-H Camp Palmer Executive Director & Board of Trustees a check for $4800 for the pool project. Also, an additional $2,200 of support was generated as result of their summer fund drawings for the pool.
The Friends of Camp Palmer is a new non- profit, 501 c(3) formed this past March with a mission to support, maintain and improve 4-H Camp Palmer.
“This grant award from Anderson Inc. Charitable Foundation and donation from the Friends of Camp Palmer are great efforts toward the fund raising for this project. We are extremely grateful to both organizations,” said Bill Goodson, Executive Director of 4-H Camp Palmer.
4-H Camp Palmer is accepting continuing donations to support the replacement of the camp’s pool. The original pool was built in 1957 and in great need of update. Currently about 40% of funds have been raised with an anticipated new pool in place by summer of 2015. The demand and use of 4-H Camp Palmer has grown steadily since 1947 serving over 295,000 regional youth. 4-H Camp Palmer is a place where adventure and excitement of discovery merge to lift minds of 6,000 youth and adults served annually.
