Rocky Mountain Power Foundation recently awarded a $2,500 grant to the Youth Garden Project to help cover costs of the nonprofit group’s internship program. The award marks the 15th year that the foundation has provided grant funding to YGP, according to a news release from the organization.

“The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation partners with organizations to help support the growth and vitality of the communities we serve,” said Deb Dull, Rocky Mountain Power customer and community manager. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to provide this assistance to the Youth Garden Project here in Moab.”

The Youth Garden Project’s mission is “to cultivate healthy children, families and community through educational programs and the profound act of connecting people with food from seed to table,” according to the news release.

“We are grateful for our continued partnership with Rocky Mountain Power Foundation,” said Erin Trim, YGP’s associate director. “Our internship program plays a fundamental role in the success of many of our program offerings, so the foundation’s support goes a long way to helping us fulfill our mission.”
