Rocky Mountain Power Foundation recently awarded a $2,500 grant to the Youth Garden Project to support the organization’s internship program. The utility has offered funding towards the program since its creation in 2011, and this year marks the 20th year that the foundation has provided a grant to YGP.
“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.”
Kaitlin Thomas, executive director of YGP added, “We are so grateful that the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has supported YGP for 20 years. It is with the support of Rocky Mountain Power Foundation that we are able to offer a high-quality internship program for young people, who in turn positively impact every program we have at YGP. When Rocky Mountain Power supports YGP and the internship program, they are also supporting access to well-rounded programs for Moab’s community members of all ages.”
YGP’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.
