“Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is pleased to support the Grand Area Mentoring and BEACON programs in the area schools,” said Deb Dull, Rocky Mountain Power customer and community manager. “Both programs are great assets for area students and the local communities we serve.”
Dahlstrom said the two programs will help students by providing proven academic assistance and enrichment activities.
“We are grateful for the continued support of the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation in helping these two key programs,” Dahlstrom said. “Together, the Grand Area Mentoring and BEACON programs provided services last year to more than 700 children, or 46 percent of the school district’s student population.”
The Grand Area Mentoring program matches volunteer mentors with students to help those students thrive. The BEACON program offers a broad selection of afterschool programs that assist students in their academic studies as well as arts and recreational clubs.
“Our programs rely on public and private supporters, and the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has supported these programs for the past seven years,” said Dan McNeil, Grand Area Mentoring director. “We couldn’t succeed without community contributors like Rocky Mountain Power Foundation.”
The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is part of the PacifiCorp Foundation, which was created in 1988 by PacifiCorp to “support the growth and vitality of communities served by Rocky Mountain Power and Pacific Power,” according to the news release.
